My Story

Hi! My name is Erika Wynn, the Artist, and Mama and behind Heartilluminate.

I've been painting and creating art in various forms since I can remember. My grandfather taught me the basics of painting as a child and I haven't stopped since. Art is a way for me to interpret and express my emotions, explore and play. 


My work is ever evolving, from the medium to the tools. I'm inspired by philosophy, the way colors make me feel, birth, and the energetic nature of things. My work is a reflection of my personal contemplative practices, where I find inspiration in the quiet places of myself. 


I'm currently exploring fiber art through wall hangings, as well as painting and illustration. I enjoy working in different disciplines, it keeps my mind creating in new and novel ways. My  journey is like a winding river, I let it take me where it wants to go.
