Erin Bennett Banks has a passion for rich narratives and culturally distinct visual storytelling. She has illustrated three nationally published children’s books, and has won several awards for her work. She has also created illustrations for clients such as Highlights for Children Magazine, McGraw-Hill, The Weekly Reader and Harvard Business Review, and her paintings have been licensed artwork for JCPenney and Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Erin lives in Charleston, SC with her husband, two cherub babies, and a couple of pugs.
She paints in oils, and I love the vibrant red outlines that electrify her compositions, and the angular planes of her “primitive” style, and the expressiveness of her characters.

More art inspiration!
