Pat Erickson ~ Figurative / Wildlife painter (Part 1) || Pat Erickson ~ Figurative / Wildlife painter (Part 2)
American fine artist Pat Erickson from Everett, WA, grew up in Northern California. Since childhood her interests were equally divided between wildlife biology and art.
She entered college as a zoology major, but after a couple years the pull of her creative side led her to a Bachelors in Fine Art. She left California for Colorado in 1989 and started concentrating on both wildlife and western subjects for her pieces. She has since re-located to the Desert Southwest. She is well known for her highly detailed portrayal of both horses and other wildlife in watercolor and prismacolor pencil.
