Katherine Erickson

Lansing, MI, United States

I have always been an artist in my soul. My life choices steered me away from art so I had to pursue other interests and careers. I have been good at these other interests and careers, but I do not feel the satisfaction I get when I create art. I joined the Army in 1979 and retired at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in 2017. After serving two years mobilized with the National Guard, I decided that this was the time for me to make a full effort at becoming a fine artist. I completed a Master's of Fine Art degree. I joined the Mid Michigan Art Guild in 2007 and have served four years as a board member. My goal in art is to translate my environment so that others may see how I view my world. I like to challenge myself by working in mediums that I am less comfortable with. I believe that this keeps my work fresh. I always had it in my mind that I had all this artwork waiting to get out. This is the time for me to give it a chance to get into the world. I have spent a large part of my life in the military and this is reflected in my work.
