A graduate of the prestigious Los Angeles Art Center College of Design, Erickson spent years as a freelance graphic artist compiling imagery from the varying demands exerted by his considerable clientele.
More recently, Erickson has applied his talents to the gradual expansion of the travel images he currently sells. Although Erickson’s pieces in the line focus on travel to the Hawaiian Islands, there is an equal share of the line that depicts some of the most recognizable landmarks from all over the United States and the world.
A meticulous researcher, Erickson tracks the slightest details—from license plates to period clothing—to render them historically accurate for a finished work which appeals to both the aviation-travel historian and any admirer of fine art.
Erickson is a member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society. Other recent awards among his numerous honors include the Patron Purchase Award at the 1997 Watercolor USA Juried Show in Springfield, MO., as well as the Gold Award at the 1994 California Discovery Awards Juried Competition.
