Born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Arizona, Erika picked up her first 35mm during high school; learning solely on film. After spending years in the dark room, she made the switch to digital as she entered her first year in the Herberger Fine Arts Program for Photography at ASU. Pulling inspiration from fashion magazines, music, and her mother’s closet; being drawn to doing fashion and portfolio work just clicked. Her feminine/masculine influenced vision and vocal subject direction are what set her apart in her work.
She is currently residing in Manchester, United Kingdom.
