Statement

Erika is a full-time painter working from her home studio in Auckland, New Zealand. She holds an Advanced Diploma in Art as well as a Bachelor in Music. Her work explores the primitive and whimsical with an often quirky narrative. It touches on the representational with a biographical element seated in childhood experiences and children’s fables and fantasies. Idiosyncracies and a surreal edge often accompanies a dreamlike realism, and together with a quirky sense of language, humour is woven in. 

Her work is held in private collections in Australia, Britain, Canada, France, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa and Sweden. 

Artist Statement:
“The works in this year's collection show my fascination with chimera - fanciful illusions and fabrications – and reference (yes, it’s true) teabags, and the stains they leave when discarded.” E. Husselmann

Finalist in both 2013 Parkin Drawing Award and 2012 Clifton Art Award as well as 2010 Estuary Art Award
