Hot off the Easel: Meet Erin Donahue Tice

Hot off the Easel: Meet Erin Donahue Tice

Postcard from Paris: A Handful of Our Favorite Neighborhood Spots Reading Hot off the Easel: Meet Erin Donahue Tice 2 minutes Next Bonjour Y'all!

We're so delighted to welcome Erin Donahue Tice to our gallery family.  This exuberant Austin-based, self-taught painter loves to push her boundaries on the easel, incorporating unexpected elements into her abstracted work. 

Erin's medium of choice is acrylics but she also experiments with mixed media, playing with everything from cardboard, paper and foam and mixing them with the acrylics, gouache, oil pastels and charcoal that bring her work to life.

She has always had admiration for the way a painting can give life and interest to a space and loves the quiet nature of painting.  She mostly relies on her imagination and the thoughts in her head to lead the brush where it needs to go. And she pulls on daily inspiration, from a friend's fabulous dress to design blogs or travel memories.

It didn't take us long to fall in love with Erin's whimsical, textural pieces and we're excited to share them with you:

Learning the Keys
Erin's palette has a wide range, from soft neutrals that focus on white, gray, sand and even black to bright, saturated colors that are like rays of sunshine.
Botanique Verte: we love the graphic simplicity of this abstracted floral (and of course, that show-stopping green).
Erin loves collage and En Pointe, below, is created with paper and cardboard. Up close, this has wonderful textural interest.
En Pointe
August Limelights
Sands of Time is another collage, this time in a beautiful and soft neutral palette.
Peace of Mind
Erin's work is up on our walls at Huff Harrington and if you're local, please come in and take a peek in person.  If you're out of town, you can check her paintings out right here and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
