About Me

Erin Wallace is a long time artist and art teacher.  Erin lives with her family in Corvallis, Oregon where she received her masters degree in teaching while working in the printmaking studio. Erin teaches art at the high school level while making her own art on the side.

She made her official beginning in arts at The Evergreen State College where she graduated with a BA in studio art emphasizing in sculptural work.  She spent time in both Mexico and Chile where she continued to develop skills as a jeweler and sculptor.  After college Erin moved to Colorado where she worked as a graphic designer before returning to school to earn a teaching certificate.
Along this journey art has been a constant companion.


Erin works predominately in assemblage in which she arranges found objects and original art into boxes and deconstructed canvases.  She loves the stories that are told in everyday objects, new and old.  Her quirky style has many layers of detail and color that draws the viewer into her world.


My studio is an artform of its own.  I fondly call it “my cave” because it is a small windowless room off of my garage, but within the walls, I have carefully curated my collections for my work.  I have shelves and cubbies and drawers all labeled and filled with treasures.
It is one of the many delights of my work, is the endless treasure hunting required for creating my pieces.
