The Artists

Erica Nordean

Acrylic paintings
Native to the Pacific Northwest, I am an internationally known painter recognized for my stunning depictions of horses and horse racing, as well as haunting landscapes and vibrant still life. Primarily self-taught, I have studied a variety of artistic styles. I found that drawing just came naturally. So, in my mid-thirties I embarked on my career as a professional artist and never looked back.

My art hangs in galleries from Seattle, Washington to Saratoga Springs, New York. In California, my work has been shown at Santa Anita, Hollywood Park, Del Mar, and Bay Meadows racetracks.
“In a world of literal-minded racing painters and patrons, Erica Nordean is one who dares to flirt with the abstract, said Daily Racing Form columnist Jay Hovedy. “Her horses are unmistakably horses, but they have a vibrant, native feel…”

I have expanded my work to include multi-media, figurative, abstract landscapes, and commissioned pieces. Prices range from $500 for an 8” x 10” painting to $5,000 for a 4’X 5’ painting. I would say of my art:
My current work is about capturing an overall presence of a single figure. My paintings are intense, ambiguous and many have a slightly lonely feel. The method is more about spending hours staring at the works than painting. I allow the paint to do what paint does…drip, mix and form shapes. I want my paintings to breathe with visual density, color, and texture. I want them to reflect a state of being.
