“Erika’s art is compelling. Her fearless use of bold, diverse and vibrant colors is an invitation, peaking my curiosity to see the subject matter as extraordinary and other-wordly. Like a scientist uses a microscope to study something more carefully, Erika’s microscope is color.”Barbara Imlach
“One of my favourite pieces of art is my painting, “Floating Lotus,” by Erika Hastings. I have had this wonderful painting in my home for the last 6 or 7 years. Before that I would admire it any time I was in Erika’s house. I have always felt a sense of peace when I look at it. I feel like I could be one of the lily pads sitting in the water. The use of bright colours also gives me a sense of ease.
In my previous apartment, this painting was the first thing you would see when you walked through the front door – it would make me feel happy I was home, and was often admired by visitors. Now it lives in my living room, where I can admire it any time I want to – I find myself drawn to it when I need to be centred. It brings me more joy than any other object in my home.”Jemima Henderson
Frequently Asked Questions
What is art commission?
An art commission is the hiring and payment for the creation of a custom piece of original art. A commission provides collectors with original works of art of a particular size, for a certain space, and/or of a specific subject matter.

To commission a painting, you simply choose the size and subject matter and pay a 50% non-refundable deposit in the Shop. Upon the completion of the painting, you pay the remaining 50% of price, plus shipping.
In conjunction with Erika, you will create a vision for the painting together. She will then sketch an image for your approval and then create your painting with her uniquely inspired color palette.

How long will it take to finish the painting?
Please allow 4-6 weeks for the completion of your painting. Upon completion you will be notified by email with a photograph of the painting.
