Erika Schulz was born on the West Coast of Canada, Erika moved to Alberta as a young child. Her natural aesthetic was greatly influenced by this contrast of landscape, between coastal and prairie. Along with the power of nature, Erika has also been greatly influenced by Asian style and the Arts and Crafts movements. Perhaps the most important influence on her paintings is the work of the Scottish artist Margaret MacDonald-Mackintosh, who inspired Erika's “drawing with paint” technique. Currently, Erika's focus is around reflecting the beauty of her surroundings, illustrating her favourite subjects, and exposing her artwork to a World Wide Web audience.
Erika has a College diploma in Visual Arts, and co-owned the commercial art gallery, Gallery I.S. Erika lives in Alberta with her family, greyhounds, cats and friends of the koi variety.
