Welcome to my website! I’m Erika Lacroix, a multi-disciplinary artist from Midland, Ontario, who finds inspiration in nature and wildlife. I love to experiment with different mediums and techniques, often incorporating bold colours and textures to express my artistic vision. I invite you to explore my galleries, learn about my creative process, and stay updated on my latest works and exhibitions by following me on social media and joining my newsletter. Thank you for visiting!
As I sat in my home-based hair salon, I couldn’t shake the feeling that something was missing. I had built a successful business and had a loyal clientele, but my passion for art, the one that had driven me since I was a child, was lying dormant. I had put it aside to pursue a career that I thought would be more practical and financially stable. But as the years went by, I couldn’t ignore the feeling that something was missing.
Then, after struggling for years with debilitating chronic pain, I was diagnosed with fibromialgia and chronic headaches. After years of building my business I was forced to retire from my salon. It was a difficult and emotional time for me. But as I sat at home, struggling to come to terms with my new reality, I realized that this could be my chance to rediscover my love for art.
With the love and support of my family, I began to relearn my artistic skills, and I started to experiment with new mediums and techniques. It was a slow process, but as I delved deeper into my art, I felt my passion reawaken. I found solace in creating, and it brought me a sense of peace and fulfillment that I had not felt in a long time.
As I rediscovered my love for art, I also discovered that it was not only a passion but a true calling. I realized that my art was not just a hobby,
but something that I needed to share with the world. It was a way for me to connect with others, to express my thoughts and emotions, and to leave a lasting impact on the world.
It wasn’t an easy journey, and there were moments when I doubted myself, but I kept pushing through. I knew that I had something special to offer, and I was determined to make it happen.
As I began to share my art with others, the response was overwhelmingly positive. I was amazed by how many people could relate to my work, and how it touched them in ways that I never thought possible. It was then that I realized that my art was not just about me, but about the connection that it could create between people.
I am now proud to say that my art has given me a renewed sense of purpose, and has brought me more happiness and fulfillment than I ever thought possible. And I am excited to continue to share my art with the world and to see where it takes me.
So, to anyone out there who may be feeling lost or stuck in their life, I urge you to listen to your heart and follow your passion. You never know where it may lead you, but it may just change your life for the better.
I warmly welcome any questions or comments you may have regarding my art, and I am delighted to offer my services for commissions as well. To get in touch, kindly utilize the form provided, and I look forward to hearing from you to discuss your ideas further.
