Art Banner by Erika Schulz

I was participating in a writing workshop this last week and, as conversations typically go with other participants, I mentioned I was working on a website for Canadian pottery research. Ruth was interested in seeing it, so I pulled it up on my laptop. The first comment she made was “Wow! I love the artwork. Who is the artist?” And here we are…

The banner, titled The Collector, is a work of art inspired by the ceramics of the west coast. In so many ways it fits – I was born in BC and lived there until I was 12 yrs old. I still consider myself a BC girl, even though I will never go back there to live. I’m a diverse collector, with a main focus on Canadian pottery. I love finding pieces I’ve never seen before and digging into the research aspect of collecting – thus, The Collector.

Erika Schulz is a central Alberta artist living and working in Red Deer. She creates and develops her art at Tempest Studios. I have long admired her – in addition to being an admirer of her fabulous artistic talent, she is also a personal friend. And  what do friends do? They create unique pieces of art for them, such as the banner you see above.
