The old wooden floors and loud, semi-provocative art hanging on the walls of The Earth House Cafe drew my soul in. There was much to see and sense, but along with this new place came feelings of old-home familiarity. I met Erin, the barista behind the wide bar…she was interesting and wore a bright red sweatshirt with sparkling applique shapes that made a jack-0-lantern face. She said it was a “Christmas-Halloween shirt!”, handmade by herself…obviously an artist who appreciates experiment.
Erin Drew is an artist out of Indianapolis…her bright/eye catching style draws the viewer in, but interestingly enough her messages often contradict their flashy colors…Capturing a reflection of modern culture.
For more of her fantastic art visit her flckr account. I’ll let you in a little secret- she has a whole lot of other cool pieces of various media. Check out my personal favorite!
