Blind contour portrait of the artist as E.T.

Blind-contour portrait of the artist as E.T. (2014)

Thanks for checking out my work! I’m a mostly self-taught artist originally from the United States, currently based in Spain. I make figurative and abstract work in acrylics, watercolor, pen, and prints.

Using drawing as a point of departure, my artwork builds intuitively, creating glimpses of strange worlds and rituals infused with a potent mystery, making external the mystical meanderings of the mind.

I draw on a range of art historical and literary imagery, especially prehistoric, ancient, medieval, folk, outsider/visionary, and tattoo art, animation, mythology and folklore. Other sources of inspiration include cellular and botanical structures, anatomical figures, marine life, and celestial landscapes.

I post additional pieces and works in progress on Instagram and Pinterest. You can buy my work as prints and other fun stuff at my Redbubble Shop. If you’d like to license my work, commission something special, collaborate on a project, or just chat, drop me a line at erin@hookneye.design.
