Erika Stallworth is a black, Oakland based illustrator and surface pattern designer with a passion for incorporating everyday objects into her work.
Her childhood love of drawing morphed into an adult passion for doodling which led to her spending many hours on Skillshare taking classes to increase her creative confidence and skill. She uses ink and watercolor and loves mixing digital illustration with traditional media.
Her work is inspired by her childhood memories, souvenirs from her travels, the black experience and food.
When Erika is not at her desk drawing, you can find her tending to her plants, planning her next travels, watching a British mystery, or obsessing over cute food packaging.
