Erin is inspired by the climate, natural ecosystems, and lifestyle of Southern California. Sunny, friendly colors coupled with an intense interest in plant life allow her to create unique surface design concepts. With a scientist’s eye she makes detailed observations about the world around her, eventually deconstructing them into color and shape. Optimism, inquisitiveness, and a child-like playfulness are pervasive throughout her work offering viewers a momentary escape from the realities of life. Her portfolio’s emphasis on home furniture and accessories correlates with her belief that home is the foundation for life.

Erin Rea is a color and surface designer living in Los Angeles, California, just twenty minutes from the beach.
