Erin J. Martinelli, is a Northern California artist who finds her inspiration in animals, nature, abstract, and architecture genres to create brilliant acrylics, etching prints, and scratchart. Erin J. Martinelli 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 Seabreeze High School, AP Art, under Nina Masters, and continued onto the University of Cincinnati, College of Fine Arts, Design, Architecture, Art and Planning.
In 2014, Erin was suddenly diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, (GBS) a rare neurological disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks part of its peripheral nervous system. After several years of recovering from GBS, Erin has re-entered the art world once again!
Erin lives in Northern California, with her husband, daughter, three German Shepherds, no chickens, and her (sometimes visiting but mostly roaming) black and white tuxedo cat. Erin’s work is popular in many private collections.
