EXPLORING ARTISTIC FREEDOM IN THE MOUNTAINS

ART IS WILD.

I believe creativity should be uninhibited.
Art sparks curiosities, stokes passions, and helps us appreciate and explore the wild beauty of our world.

I'm Erika Donaghy.

hey, hi, hello!
(pronounced donna-hey)

​I’m a self-taught artist living in the Colorado Rockies. In 2017, I was looking for a fun creative outlet and took a watercolor workshop with a few friends. I was hooked immediately. Suddenly, I didn’t go anywhere without my sketchbook and travel watercolor palette.

Painting changed the way that I see the world...

I find greater appreciation in the beauty of the tiny details along the trail and that is the feeling I want to bring to you through my work. I want you to feel joy and curiosity when you look at my paintings or sip tea from one of my mugs.

While watercolor will always be my first love, I found a new artistic obsession when I started playing with clay...

 

I tried my hand at wheel throwing for the first time in 2019, and just like with painting, I was immediately in love with it. It didn’t take long before I had my own wheel and was planning to build out my own studio.

However, I never would have expected that I would have my very own studio less than a year later. When the coronavirus pandemic shut everything down, my husband and I finished the shed in our backyard and turned it into a beautiful ceramic studio.

Now, my pieces are created in my backyard studio with my cute little kiln!

Splitboard in the winter and trail run in the summer (Acorn Creek is my favorite trail in Summit County!)

I’m extroverted! (kinda weird for an artist ;) But I truly love talking to people, so please say hi, if you see me around!
