Ericka has expressed herself through arts since she was able to pick up a crayon. Her first love was color and photography. As she got older her passion grew from drawing and coloring to incorporate the construction of clothing and furniture along with anything else she could dream up.
When she was 18 she joined the Navy and took an eight year break from art to work on her career in the military. After leaving active duty to join the reserves she returned to school and rediscovered her love for art. Most of her early work (before the military) has been lost or destroyed, but she is now producing new work weekly.
