Erika Medina- Connecting Within and Without   

Local artist Erika Medina creates art in which layers of emotion and experiences are laid out symbolically on the human form and face in a series of drawings on paper and mixed media figures.

For the past 20 years, her work has focused primarily on creating these Elemental Beings and Unseen Forces, made with various materials; oils, metal, and found objects on wood.  She creates art to stir memories deep within herself and within the viewer; memories of connection to remind us we are not separate from the earth, from the sea, from the trees. We are not separate from each other.
