“I was passionate about mathematics,” said Erian. “I didn’t want to pursue art because I wanted to be financially independent, but I think artists struggle to make it.”

Elian hopes to evoke joy in all who see her work.
“This kind of medium and painting gives me a lot of joy. My aim is for others to experience this joy when they see my work,” Elian said . “When someone walks past my painting on the wall, I want to bring a smile to their face every time they see it.
Before the winter show, Erian will be at the Rancho Santa Margarita Arts and Crafts Fair on Saturday, October 29 from 11am to 4pm, selling small holiday gifts and painted decorations.
