Kathy Ericksen Artist About Me


Name: Kathy Ericksen

Arch Nemesis: Discouragement, Self-Doubt and Fear of Failure

Arch-Angel: George who has supported me in so many ways and encouraged me to be an artist.  Joan who has taught me and mentored me and just been a great encouraging friend.  Lee Ann who has come along side of me and has such sweet insight and love and is a wise soul.

Ultimate Quote: Vulnerability is the birthplace of creativity, innovation and change.  It is also the birthplace of joy, faith and connection.  To create is to make something that has never existed before.  There’s nothing more vulnerable than that.  Dr Brene Brown
