About the Artist

Erin J. Martinelli is a Northern California artist who finds her inspiration in landscapes, seascapes, animals, and architecture creating brilliant acrylics, and etching prints. 

Erin trained at the very early age of seven years old at The Casements in Ormond Beach, FL, the former winter home of John D. Rockefeller. She then later studied at the University of Cincinnati, (DAAP Program) College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. 

Erin lives in Northern California, with her husband, daughter, three German Shepherds, no chickens, and her black & white tuxedo cat who comes and goes as he pleases.

Erin’s work is popular in many private collections. Erin is currently represented by Archival Gallery, in Sacramento, CA.
