Erica Youngman HS ARMS

Erica Youngman - miniature artist

I was born in Lancashire in 1972, but I have now lived in Dorset for over 30 years. A professional watercolour artist, I specialise mainly in architecture, landscapes, wildlife, and portraits .  However I also enjoy working in pen and ink.
 
In 1997 I married my husband Mark, and we live on the edge of the pretty medieval market town of Wimborne Minster.  Living in the South of England has given me great inspiration for much of my artwork.  But over the last few years I have regularly travelled to Europe to seek new inspiration, hence the architecture of the fantastic cities I have visited is reflected in my more recent artwork.

Attention to detail has always been an important part of my work, but it wasn’t until 2004 that I really became fascinated with painting fine art in miniature.  This was the year I had my paintings selected for The Hilliard Society, and during this process I was also delighted to receive an honourable mention.  In 2008 I received the Suzanne Lucas Award for best in exhibition.  

I also felt deeply privileged to have my paintings selected for both the Royal Miniature Society which holds its annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London, and to win the RMS Group award for best set of five or more works,that same year.
