Flagstaff artist Erin Brinkman (1983) was born and raised north of Apache Junction, Arizona. She moved to Flagstaff in 2001 to attend Northern Arizona University where she studied studio art and French- two of her life-long passions. She lived abroad and had a career as a French teacher before deciding to paint full time.
Her early influences were the post-impressionists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, and more recently by the old masters and contemporary British art. Her work incorporates dramatic soft lighting, and a simple yet bold palate.
As a whole, her work primarily features the human form as an attempt to sympathize with the human experience, display its natural beauty, and elevate our ability to continually improve. She currently lives and works in Flagstaff, AZ and has been exhibiting since September 2012
