About Erin M. Wheeler

Erin McCluskey Wheeler's mixed media paintings are process-oriented, beginning with a scrap of a painting, an experiment in color, or a found photograph. Erin pieces the papers together following colors, forms, and shapes -- building up layers of collage material then drawing and painting over with gouache and acrylic to create bright, densely layered paintings. There is often the suggestion of topography and water, botanical forms, and big curves of space.

Her work is available through West Elm and Minted

Erin was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and continues to live and work there. She earned a dual BA degree from Beloit College in Studio Art and Art History and an MFA from California College of the Arts. Erin maintains a dual practice in visual art and writing and her work has been exhibited and published nationally.
