Meet Erin
of Erin Holbrook Sudio


Tell Us About Yourself

I am a fine artist, muralist and graphic designer. After graduating from college with a degree in Art Marketing with a concentration in Painting, I worked for many years as a graphic designer for a high end furniture manufacturer. Last year I was able to leave that job and pursue my part time design and art business full time - Moonlight Studio Design, Inc. I offer graphic design services, creating logos, business cards, magazine ads, catalogs, brochures and more as well as creating fine art paintings, drawings and murals. I do a lot of commissions, especially of portraits.

I love to paint! I enjoy painting the human figure as well as old, rusted cars. Whether I'm painting the figure, cars or flowers, I like to think of each artwork as a portrait, striving to highlight the unique characteristics of each subject through color, expressive brushstrokes and composition. I really love visual design in all it's forms, from interiors to furniture to textiles. I'm also really adamant about functional and practical designs and I try to be selective about the materials I use because sustainability and healthy products and processes are important to me.

How Did You Get Your Start On Etsy?
I started on Etsy a few years ago as a way to try to expand my sales because I live in a very rural area. And sadly it sat unattended for awhile and I have only recently in the past year had the time to really begin to participate and interact on the Etsy site and begin to refine and promote my shop.

How Did You Choose Your Shop Name?
I struggle with naming things a lot! That is very hard for me... naming paintings is a chore! so I went the boring route and chose my name but thought it may be best since I was primarily selling my artwork.

If You Could Go Anywhere In The World For One Day, Where Would It Be?
That is a very tough question... so many places I would like to go. Right now I would have to say I would love to be at a open beach house on tropical type island with crystal clear aqua blue waters - but it's winter and I'm in need of a vacation... I'd like to see the Grand Canyon or Italy or... it could go on and on.


What Is Your Favorite Bible Verse?
Jeremiah 29:11 (HCSB)
"For I know the plans I have for you" - this is the LORD'S declaration -
"plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."

Psalm 121 (HCSB)
I lift my eyes toward the mountains.
Where will my help come from?

My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not allow your foot to slip;
your Protector will not slumber.
Indeed, the Protector of Israel
does not slumber or sleep.

The LORD protects you; th
the LORD is a shelter right
by your side.
The sun will not strike you by day
or the moon by night.

The LORD will protect you
from all harm;
He will protect your life.
The LORD will protect your coming
and going
both now and forever.

Nice to meet you Erin. I like looking at rusted old cars. The "patina" is amazing on them.
