Erin Whitman grew up in San Diego, California, but has spent most of her adult life on the coast of Northern California. After studying Studio Art, Art History, and Creative Writing at Humboldt State University, she completed her MFA in Painting at Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2006. She returned to Humboldt County in 2007 to teach painting and drawing at her alma mater as well as at the nearby College of the Redwoods. Inspired by her students, she is currently embarking on a journey across America to better understand this complex moment in history, and to study our culture as it manifests through architecture, landscape, and human experience.
