Erika Cholich employs a combination of technical skill with intuitive mark making, working directly in oil paint from life.

Working from life...  searching for a balance of the known and the perceived... forces the artist to contend with limitations. It's experiential and transient in nature. Capturing 'life' and translating that intangible energy... is dependent on 'real-time' factors...
