About Erin McCluskey Wheeler

I make bright colored collage works that employ a meticulous assemblage of found papers often bound together with looping brushstrokes. With both an abstract and graphic style, my art is sometimes symbolic or whimsical, and plays with ideas of nostalgia and visual memories in a narrative context. I source both found materials and create my own painted paper collage material to create densely layered paintings full of light and space.

I have a BA in studio art, and a BA in art history from Beloit College, and an MFA in writing from California College of the Arts.
