Author/illustrator

Long before erin the great became an artist, she was a quiet girl in a huge, loud family.  In her silence, no one knew Erin was creating make believe worlds.  In a closet or underneath the table (her favorite hiding spots), little Erin would conduct experiments in imagination. From an early age, she developed a strong love for art.  Erin picked up many pencils and paintbrushes along the way, eventually receiving a degree in fine arts from the University of Tennessee, where her illustrations continued to take on a very imaginative, playful spirit.  It was this spirit that carried Erin from the canvas to the children’s book.

“I had such a strong bond with my favorite books growing up.  I hope my illustrations can have that same effect on someone else!”

Erin has written and illustrated 2 books Just Beyond My Front Door and Mr. Mailbox Man Goes to Work.  She and Kelly Young-Silverman have teamed up to make Evie and Knox Stories, the first story being Man in the Moon.  For fun, Erin plays keys in the band, Imagination Head, with her husband.  She has a baby Pterodactyl, Knox (the famous baby from Evie and Knox stories)!
