As an interior design consultant by trade and education since 1980, I have worked with businesses and homeowners, creating their dream homes, remodeling and improvement projects.
One of my favorite parts about an interior design project is the final steps of placing art and accessories. Occasionally when searching for just the right piece, I would stumble upon a beautiful hand-painted silk scarf. I would be drawn to it, like a magnet! I love the depth of color, the way it slipped through my fingers and even the smell of silk. A magical experience!
After ordering a beginners kit and several different qualities of silk scarves, I was hooked on the infinite number of techniques to uniquely express myself through painting on silk.
Wanting to know more about duplicating my silk images, I jumped in with both feet, learning everything I could about digital painting and printing on textiles. Along the way, I rediscovered the joy of yoga. One thing led to another and Yoga Energy Art was born! As they say, it is all about the journey.
Learning, growing, sharing and BEing more than I ever imagined. Connecting to something MORE...

Testimonital by Carleen S.
Erin is an artist who cares deeply about love and bringing more of that precious emotion into the world. Her stunning designs are more than visual delights as she puts the energy of love into everything she does. I feel that when I gaze at my chakra prints or enjoy a few moments of peaceful renewal with an eye pillow encased in one of her designs. She is a gifted artist creating inspiring art and helping others to do so as well. She is a gifted human being sharing beauty and love through her talents.
