I'm Erin Williams, a Black artist and creative currently based in St. Louis. I specialize in drawing, abstract acrylics, and printmaking. My work has been featured in various newsletters and sites, I have led workshops and painting classes, and in Fall 2021 I began earning an MFA in Illustration and Visual Culture from Washington University in St. Louis. From 2019-2021, I hosted and produced the podcast “In Which I Talk To Artists,” where I interviewed artists about their work and inspiration. I am also a member of Solas Studios in New York City.
What does black joy look like to you?
Happiness! Freedom! Summertime! Warmth and acceptance. Doing as I damn well please. Watching other Black people shine and achieve their dreams. Anything posted on instagram by my dear friend, Nicole Crowder. When I shave my head and like what I see. Stevie Wonder, now and forever.
