Erin Starr (American b.1970, Kansas City, MO) is a painter known for her contemporary large-scale studies of the female figure and flowers. Her work is primarily in the medium of painting using acrylic, ink, and oil.

Erin's flowers and figures embrace both form and color with bold brush strokes to show movement and warmth. Erin tries to find the beauty in what is before us even when darkness may prevail around us.

"Painting does not come from sight or touch, but my endless thoughts, racing on a journey. A journey of self discovery, beautiful, cruel, alone, and naked.

Erin graduated from Graceland University in 1992 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art and was awarded the Claudia Van Bibler Award of Excellence for her work during her 4 years at Graceland University. Erin began showing her work immediately out of college in Seattle, Washington.  She pursued painting the figure with passion, and realized quickly nudity is often met with controversy. Erin has exhibited continuously in Providence, Rhode Island since 2004. In addition she also had numerous exhibits in New York City.  Her art has been shown in Canada, Germany, Belgium, and all over the United States. Private collectors from all across the United States as well as Europe, Nepal, and Canada have purchased her paintings. Erin continuous to travel to Europe and North America to be inspired. She currently resides in Providence, Rhode Island and loves to frequent New York City, for visits and exhibitions of her work.
