Hey! Hi! Hello!

I'm Erika Donaghy (It's pronounced like "donna-hey")

I’m the artist and owner behind Erika Donaghy Creative Studio.

​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. 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.

Making art brings me joy and starting this creative business just feels like me. I hope you can feel this sense of joy and curiosity when you look at a one of my paintings or have your morning coffee in one of my handmade mugs.

Let's be friends!
