Erica Roberts

Erica Roberts is a fine artist living in Saint Joseph, Michigan. Erica’s paintings are created with saturated, bold tones using oils and dichroic glass glazes. Her work is characterized by her paintings of female protagonists and their spirit animals. It often possesses an air of surrealism and dark fantasy.

Erica’s work is about "The Heroine's Journey"- a parallel to "The Hero's Journey". The former is a book by Maureen Murdock and a tool used to study narration. Erica’s work embodies the female version of this story archetype, with each artwork representing a real life experience of hers, women she knows, or those of female historical figures.
