Artist Name: Melody Erickson
Medium/Technique: Handcrafted Leather & Jewelry
Melody Erickson has been creating art since she was a little girl, growing up in Salinas, CA. Led & inspired by her mother’s creative spirit she explored the processes of many different types of crafts & creations.
In the early 70’s, Erickson’s family migrated to the Northeast, where she remained until her move to Nashville in 2001. As a young mother living in the Northeast, Erickson, along with her two daughters, spent many summer vacations enjoying the beauty of the Adirondacks. These experiences have influenced the primitive style in Erickson’s work.
