Brown Bowen In Collaboration With Pye Papers
Erica and I met a few years ago after she became a customer and shared a picture of her precious boys in our clothes!! She designed our Christmas Cards that year and I fell in love with her beautiful watercolor and hand lettering style.
When I started thinking about adding swim to our collection, all I could envision was watercolor and I knew immediately that Erica would be the perfect person!!!
Erica grew up in Marietta, Georgia. A graduate of UGA and an Occupational Therapist by trade, she is completely self taught!!
A little more about Erica:
“I first started doing paper items for my wedding when I made everything (programs, menus, etc at home with my sister’s help). My best friend Ashley, encouraged me to start my little paper business in 2016, she actually named it. I chose to take a break from home health therapy when the pandemic started. Although I’ve loved art and drawing since I was a child, I started painting more then- mainly for an outlet and stress relief before my boys woke up and I had to attempt teaching at home. My boys and I started painting more during this time for a fun activity (they LOVE watercolor painting). I decided to only use my art at that point. It wasn’t fancy, but it was unique and it was mine. So now, everything I sell is drawn by me. I also love hand lettering. I learned to do this in the early morning hours when my boys were babies so I could letter in my Bible. I am completely self taught. No art degree, but I truly love that creative outlet. I am so grateful for the support and encouragement of my friends, family, and customers.”
