Erica was born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Her lifetime experiences and family background have made her a curious traveler and storyteller. Currently, she is a senior at Brown University studying Visual Arts. Her artistic interests are in photography, but she is also interested in mixed-media collage, painting and spray paint. At Brown, Erica is interested in learning different approaches to teaching, so this year she is leading a class called the Female Sexuality Workshop. This past summer she worked for professor Shirley Brice Heath to study art education at the painting studio in RiverzEdge. When Erica graduates she hopes to teach, travel, bake bread, and create lots of art.
