Hi! I'm glad you are here!
I am Erin Merrill, artist and educator located in Dothan, AL. I've always loved the feel and movement of painting. I fell in love with the thickness, texture, and radiance of oil paint about 13 years ago, began selling my work, and that has been my primary medium since.
I graduated from Auburn University in 2005 with a degree in Communication and minor in Art History. After my kids were born I got a M.S. in Elementary Education. Currently I am a 5th grade math and science teacher, and added K-12 art to my certification in 2021. I am a resident artist at The Untrained Edit where I teach art classes, host visiting artist workshops, create art, and enjoy being surrounded by other creatives.
My goal is to connect with people by adding color to their lives, and through classes give people the knowledge and confidence to continue creating on their own.
