Erin Sanders

I'm a 23 year old freelance artist and writer from Melbourne, Australia, and I've been drawing for as long as I can remember. I'm studying the Bachelo of Social Sciences, and my art is a vain attempt to fund the starving uni student lifestyle. Vertizart is my business name, and anything else affiliated with my art. I work in natural media, mostly acrylic paint, graphite, ink, soft pastels, and the occaisional watercolour pencil. My lifelong love is portraiture, and while I still do photorealism, I am focusing on a more illustrative style at the moment, using ink and a more pointillist technique. I'm open to commissions, so if you are interested drop me an email, or if you are so inclined, waltz over to my livejournal, or take a look at my other gallery, which contains other examples of my work that don't fit in the Elfwood genres. My main artistic inspirations are the pre-raephelites, the old masters and artists from the art-nouveau movement, such as Aubrey Beardsley. I enjoy good literature, good conversation and good wine. That being said, enjoy :)
