I think Erika and I first noticed each other by the others' moves (...and hips) in the dance class we took together while attending the University of WA. We further bonded by our mutual pursuit of art degrees and our love of Parnassus (UW art building's coffee shop, where I worked and spent much of my time). Three years later, she is still one of my loves living in Seattle.
Erika is showing "Who Are We," a collection of paintings and installations, up at A Gallery in the Intergus Architecture building. If you are in Seattle you should definitely check it out! I just so happen to be in one of the paintings. How flattering is it to be in someone's art huh?
