Ericka O'Rourke

New Jersey based award-winning artist Ericka O'Rourke creates her art as an exploration of relationships and connections to the natural world. She is inspired by geologic formations, walks along the coast, past civilizations, flora and fauna - the inherent natural beauty in the surfaces, textures, colors, and organic forms.  She received her BFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts with concentrations in painting, ceramics, printmaking, and photography.  Ericka is also an accomplished commercial artist whose work graces the covers of over 300 books. Her artwork is represented in private and corporate collections internationally.
