Erin Milan was born in a small town in Kansas. She graduated from Azusa Pacific University in Los Angeles where she studied painting. After a hiatus from painting to focus on having children and on family, she is painting full time from her studio on Mercer Island, near Seattle. Milan’s high realism figurative oil paintings explore desire, nourishment, and loss, and what it feels like to be human. She hopes her work expresses the value of the human, and especially female, form. Her work has recently been exhibited at RJD Gallery in New York, the new Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art, Sirona Fine Art, as well as Suzanne Zahr near Seattle for a solo exhibit.
PAINTING THE FIGURE NOW at WAUSAU MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART, JULY to SEPTEMBER 2018.
