Hello Fellow Creatives!
My name is Erin Malia Cross.
I hold a MFA in Visual Studies from Norfolk State University and have over 15 years experience in the educational and professional field of studio art.
The investigation and continuous experience in making art is an essential component to visual problem solving in every communication genre. I emphasize creative purpose and experimentation that guides students toward a development of their own individual narrative and body of work. This reflects an informed and unique perspective while having an awareness of how their ideas relate to the contemporary world.
All ages and stages of artistic ability are welcome!
You have the power to manifest bliss through creative development that unlocks the joyful potential of your creative self. No matter your goal, I can work with you to cultivate your skills and we will work together to create a solid foundation of art techniques.
I focus on 2D Studio Art:
graphite, colored pencil, chalk pastel, and pen and ink techniques
watercolor, mixed media, and oil painting techniques
