About Erika Arett

​I feel like I'm living in a garden where I am both the gardener and the bloom. Or maybe I'm living in a jungle and I'm only a little spider spinning a web.


I earned a degree in art history (University of Michigan) and fell in love with Japanese art, especially wood block prints and ceramics. I also received a degree in painting and drawing (School of the Art Institute of Chicago), where I found my inclination for improvisation worked best with acrylic paints and pastels and discovered a preference for life size or over-life size images.


My work has appeared in art shows in Chicago, Colorado, Ohio and Arizona and is in numerous private, corporate and hospitality collections.
