Innovative, abstract art has always appealed to Erin. After playing collegiate basketball and studying abroad, she graduated from the University of Missouri with a Communications & Fine Art degree. She later moved to Chicago where she began working in the printing industry. To find her creative outlet, she taught herself how to manipulate wire and assemble one-of-a-kind jewelry. Soon enough, her colleagues and friends were asking to purchase her unique designs. Erin realized she ultimately wanted to pursue a creative field, so she went back to school to obtain a Fashion Design degree from the The Art Institutes of Chicago. She then moved to Los Angeles where she began working for Tory Burch and continued to sell her handmade jewelry to friends and local boutiques. Personal styling and retail management opportunities took Erin and her daughter to Portland, Oregon, where she led and managed a Margaret O'Leary store for many years and continued to grow her jewelry business on the west coast.
Erin's collections have been sold in luxury boutiques in Chicago, Los Angeles, Palo Alto, Seattle, Portland, and the San Francisco Bay Area.
