Erin Lee Gafill

Erin's roots in the arts run deep. Her great-great grandmother was Jane Gallatin Powers, who had the first artist's studio in Carmel, and who, along with her husband Frank, created the artists' colony which is today Carmel-by-the-Sea. Her grandparents, Lolly and Bill Fassett built Nepenthe Restaurant in Big Sur, the legendary watering hole for artists, poets, writers, and bohemians.

Erin co-founded the Big Sur Arts Initiative, a nonprofit arts education organization, and in 2001 was chosen to the be first American artist-in-residence at the Hamada International Children's Museum of Art in Hamada Japan.

An award-winning writer, painter, and teacher, Erin's work is collected internationally. These limited edition prints, as well as note cards and original oil paintings are available through the Phoenix Shop.
