About Erin McCluskey Wheeler

I work in collage + paint creating colorful abstract pieces full of texture. I use found photographs, bits of older paintings and prints, and layers of gouache, watercolor, and acrylic. I come from a family of quilt makers and my work, like quilting, is full of vivid colors, strong contrasting color combinations, rectangular piecework, reused old material, and line work.

Thank you so much Erin for the like of 'a Kaleidoscope of color' This is my first attempt entering into an art challenge, normally I only submit to the design challenges. It was time to challenge myself:-) Love your beautiful abstract artwork! Fabulous hopes and colors.
