Erin Balzer

Erin was raised in a family of woodworkers, sewists and painters, crafters who greatly influenced her chosen illustration medium: woodcut printing. She loves the process of carving her characters into wood and seeing how their quirky and whimsical identities come to life through the ink in the prints. If she could choose where and how to spend her time, it would be carving and doodling endlessly beside a lake, or trailblazing through the woods with her husband and their German Wirehaired Pointer, Freya.

Big mugs of milky coffee, cozy socks, chickadees, smelly candles, and the color green.
