Mural Artist: Erica Arndts

Providing a visual diary of her personal journey through life, inspirations, and influences is the mission behind her art. It’s meant to tell a story of the good, and the bad issues that matter most to her. Originally from Dayton, OH, she studied fine art and fashion design then held a career as a fashion designer in Los Angeles for 3 years before deciding to go back to my first love -painting!  She then gave everything she had to live as a painter, while expanding her painting career across the world. She’s currently primarily focused murals and canvas paintings.

She believes as a muralist, it is her duty to help provide communities with powerful artwork and give everyone an opportunity to access art. Sacred lands, animals, and cultural communities are the main underlying theme in her work. My goal is to paint for positive impact and help bring communities together.
