Erica is Rare Bird's mama. She created Rare Bird as a space to nurture herself as an artist, and teacher, along with her creative community. She sees the shop space as her canvas to decorate and merchandise with the goal of creating a welcoming, inspirational environment. Erica is the buyer for Rare Bird, curating the shop with hand crafted goods by local and independent artists, and carefully selected brands & treasures new and old. She is a maker who has spent 15 years designing jewelry, painting, sewing, making terrariums, sun catchers, scarves and more. Erica's creations are available in the shop, for custom orders & she offers DIY workshops her in our Makers' Studio. When Erica's not at Rare Bird you can find her crafting in her home studio with her man, Matt, hiking in the woods or canoeing down a river somewhere.
