Erin Meyer was born in Anchorage, AK and currently lives and works in Seattle, WA. Her work includes emotive charcoal drawings, fiber sculptures, and playful sculptural installations. In 2015 Erin graduated from the University of Alaska Anchorage with a BFA in Drawing, but has since used three-dimensional media as a means to challenge current socio-political viewpoints surrounding disability as an inferior version of the human experience. By creating semi-autobiographical characters that depict her own struggle with disability, Meyer instead pronounces that those living with disability are no better, nor any worse, than their able-bodied counterparts; only different.
Erin Meyer recently received the Gonzales Graduate Recognition award at the University of Washington, where she completed her MFA in Sculpture.
