Growing up in a small town in New England, illustrator and printmaker Erin Cunliffe found a love for making art very early in life. Cunliffe grew up reading picture books and watching cartoons with her older brother. The images she saw in her picture books left her mesmerized and sparked her creative career. Cunliffe has spent her time exploring mediums of all kinds ranging from traditional painting techniques and different forms of printmaking. She has also begun to illustrate digitally. Cunliffe has recently earned her MFA in illustration through Hartford Art School’s Low Residency MFA in Illustration program. Cunliffe draws inspiration from many places. Her influences include pop culture, politics, art history, traveling, and the stories she would make up as a child. Her style inspirations range from the animated films and shows she watched growing up in the 90s to Japanese woodblock prints and ink paintings.
