Erin Milan grew up in a small Kansas town. She studied painting at Azusa Pacific University in Los Angeles and received a Bachelor of Arts with an emphasis in studio art.
After a hiatus from painting to focus on her family and motherhood, she is now happy to be working again from her studio on Mercer Island.
Milan’s high realism figurative oil paintings explore desire, nourishment, and loss, and what it feels like to be human. She hopes her work expresses the value of the human, and especially female, form.
Her work has recently been exhibited at RJD Gallery in New York, the new Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art, Sirona Fine Art, as well as Suzanne Zahr near Seattle for a solo exhibit
