Erin Fox is a Cascadia-based artist specializing in colored pencils. A film-school drop-out, she received her science degree with a focus on Atmospheric Science at Seattle Central College. She returned to coloring after a short stint modifying global climate models.
Her major sources of inspiration include the natural world, travel, vintage rock posters, Eastern folk art (Indian, Russian, Turkish, Persian), and 60’s counterculture. With an ever-present slant towards environmentalist, socialist, and communitarian ideologies, through a variety of mediums her work explores the intersections between the worlds of abstraction, representations of nature, and the role art takes in the socio-political realm. She has exhibited work throughout Cascadia and has done Murals abroad. She lives and works in Seattle, Washington.
