Four Part Remote Learning Series
Artist Erica Ramsey.
Artist Bio; Erica Ramsey was three when her dad dipped a brush in paint to write her name E R I C A, across her bedroom wall in a perfect peachy pink. She thought it was magic, and she wanted to be magic. At the University of Wyoming Ramsey studied painting, drawing and art history earning a BFA and a BA in Women's Studies. She has maintained an active studio practice since the age of 15, as well as taught visual art in a variety of contexts for the past decade. Today her studio is in Hingham Square where she paints and works creatively every day. Her work can be viewed at eramseyart.com and @eramseyart.
