Erika Rachel is self taught and best known for her abstract paintings, but has worked in mediums such as screen printing, collage, and photography.
Her work has exhibited at respected institutions, museums, galleries, art fairs, in public spaces and boutiques along the northeast, including The Guild Hall Museum, Ashawagh Hall, ArtExpo, and The Hunterdon Art Museum.
Erika’s dedication to sharing art with the public has led her to teaching workshops, doing live demonstrations, presenting at her former HS’s art fair, and working with government officials to create experiences and opportunities for community engagement.
She was invited to speak at WIP (NYC) as a part of their visual artist panel, and as a guest artist at Industry Night for NYC’s chic Chef’s Club by F&W. She has also worked with Tag Heuer on a special presentation and exhibit for one of their locations.
Her work sits in the private collections of notable art patrons including Lawrence Benenson (MoMa Board of Trustees) and Cyma Zarghami (President Viacom Kids and Family Group).
She has been mentioned in countless newspapers, and featured in magazines L’Etage, Posture, CREATIV and The Princeton Packet.
As part of her professional practice she contributes to benefit auctions and belongs to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Guild Hall Museum and the Springs Improvement Society of East Hampton NY.
Her public works can be seen in Princeton NJ’s Dohm Alley and as part of the Outside the White Cube exhibit (Fall 2018).
Her studio and residence are located in a humble rivertown along the Delaware.
