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.
