Erica was born and raised in Cleveland, TN. She went to Bradley Central High School where she graduated with honors. She married her high school sweetheart, Patrick Stewart (not the actor), in 2014 and they have been together for almost eight years now. They have two spoiled rotten cats, a brother and sister named Digby and Daisy. They spend most of their time together going on adventures or hanging out at their house in the country. Erica graduated from Cleveland State Community College in 2016 and spent one year in the Sculpture Program at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga where she was awarded the 2017-2018 Lessie Peeler McKay Scholarship. Erica for many years had considered herself an “all over artist”, and she kind of still is, but she has found a niche in fiber arts that she wishes to explore. She deals with crochet, needle felting, plaster sculpture work, environmental works, domestic objects, the battle between art and craft, and recently the battle with feminism and housewifery. She is still learning and growing as an artist and will continue to be “all over”. She now has a studio at the Cleveland WorkSpace, deka_studios! To check out her work, you can like her page on facebook, Erica Katherine Stewart. Instagram, deka_studios, or come on down to Cleveland and see deka_studios for yourself!
