Erin (b.1987) is an emerging artist working in charcoal and oil. She graduated from Miami University with a bachelor's degree in Social Psychology and Entrepreneurship in the Spring of 2009. After college, she decided to pursue her passion and enroll in the fine art atelier formerly called The Waichulis Studio, now the Ani Academy Waichulis in Bear Creek, Pennsylvania. There she spent three years learning the painting and drawing fundamentals necessary to reach her goal of rendering form realistically. In 2011 Erin developed an educational program aimed at empowering individual artists with not only art skills but also business fundamentals. Her vision became a reality and in 2012 she founded fine arts school, Atelier Dualis.
