My Story

Hi! My name is Erika Wynn, the Artist, Mama and Yoga Instructor 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 spiritual practice, 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 mediums, it keeps my mind working in new and novel ways. My creative journey is like a winding river, I let it take me where it wants to go.

 

Yoga informs my art and vice versa. They support each other and both practices lead me down a path of deeper discovery - both in my work and personal life.  Thank you for being here and supporting me.
