Erin Stinson is a multi-disciplinary artist, calling Fort McMurray home since 2003. Her art practice is driven by concept, which allows her the freedom to create as compelled, seeking the most effective medium, technique and discipline in which to communicate.
Her visual artworks are rooted in natural elements. Each piece is formed in response to the unfolding story revealed through Creation. Extracting basic lines and shapes from the intricate natural world, she explores an elemental approach to her experiences. Observing light, colour, shape and line, the subjects are deconstructed then fashioned into various works. Currently these works consist of layered mixed media pieces and woven textile wall hangings. Natural materials (like birch bark and wildflowers collected to dye fabric and paper) are incorporated into each piece along with conventional materials. The process of gathering and preparing natural materials allows a connective thread from her experience in the natural environment through to the finished works.
