Erica-Lynn Huberty

Born in New York City, by age 8, Erica-Lynn Huberty was painting, creating needlework, writing and illustrating little books, and studying under Master Etcher Aïda Whedon. After high school, she attended Parsons School of Design for two years, then the Gallatin School at New York University, where she received a B.A. with Honors in Fine Arts, Literature, and History in 1991. She earned a double-Masters Degree in Visual Arts and Literature from Bennington College in 1995, then completed post-Masters studies in drawing at RISD Museum School, Providence.

Fascinated by the Decorative Arts, she trained extensively under two Fine Finishers and owned a Decorative Painting firm from 1999-2005 while continuing to show art, and write fiction, as well as art reviews and essays for many publications including Sculpture Magazine and The New York Times. She is the author of Dog Boy and Other Harrowing Tales, a collection of short stories (Rising Star, 2010). Her art work is featured in The Passion of Birds (Clarkson Potter, 2011).

Huberty’s work explores the tradition of creating practical and yet beautiful works that are at once tedious and demanding, as well as a symbol of feminine self-worth. Combining textiles, small brush work, collage, pen and ink, and embroidery, the narrative of each piece develops organically from textures and images found on textiles, or in scraps of trim, lace, and appliqués. She is informed by 17th-19th Century naturalist drawings, and Dutch and Flemish portraiture, and by the nearly-obsessive amassing and categorizing of ephemera and specimens during the 19th Century which, in our 21st Century, has often translated into the amassing of goods, and the ways we seek to organize these belongings.
