Erin Droese Designs started as a creative outlet for me after spending long hours in front of my computer as a CPA. I felt a strong pull into creating something with my hands, away from screens, and reconnecting myself to creation around us. When I was younger, I loved to draw. I would sketch out clothes and my dream was to be a fashion designer. Fastforward several years, and here I am combining my love of design with a passion for creating and honoring nature. You will find coastal themes through out my work, but I have been enjoying exploring new landscapes and subjects to paint. Overall, the goal of my work is to draw out the joy, nostalgia, and beautiful imperfections in my subjects.
I was born and raised in Eastern NC and went to NC State University where I received my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Accounting. I work full time as a CPA and enjoy my life as an artist on nights and weekends. I currently live in Morehead City, NC with my husband and two dogs.
