While pursuing her undergraduate degrees in photography and art history at Massachusetts College of Art & Design, Erica traveled to Guatemala to study Mayan art and architecture. While there, she collaborated with a local artist to paint a mural at the youth center in Antigua and also completed a photography project about the women artisans of the local weaving cooperative. After earning her BFA, she continued to travel through Central and South America, creating visual storytelling projects. Her landscape and portraiture photography has been exhibited in solo and group art exhibitions throughout the US as well as in online and print publications. She developed a passion for working with youth in arts-based community and museum programs in Boston, which led her to pursue her Master of Arts in Teaching from Tufts University. Erica is currently a freelance photographer and a visual art/photography instructor at a high school north of Boston as well as at The Danforth Art Museum. She has previously led travel programs and photography workshops, including Putney Student Travel and National Geographic programs, in the U.S., Croatia, Ecuador, Italy, Germany, and Iceland. Besides photography and travel, Erica enjoys cooking new recipes and hiking, biking, and swimming.
