Erica Konrad has a university degree in environmental studies, with a background in environmental advocacy and education. This has laid the inspiration for her work as an artist, working in encaustic, oil, plaster and gouache. She has combined her two passions, for the environment and art and owns and operates an art & ecology centre (Hidden Creek) in Nelson. Having designed and helped build her fourth straw bale eco home, she is equally passionate about leaving a ‘green’ footprint.
