Erin Ploen

Erin Ploen is a Chicago-based artist. After graduating from The University of Indiana in 2018 with a B.A. in Graphic Design and Studio Art, Erin entered the world of Advertising, where she currently exists as a Senior Graphic Designer at FKA. Her personal work investigates still life and the human form, through abstract portraits and vibrant acrylic paintings. Partial to the role of emotion in color theory and a devoted interest in sustainability, Erin looks to inject a marriage of energy, language and up-cycled materials within each of her projects. Erin is planning her first formal gallery offering for Spring 2023. By employing salvaged materials as both a medium and a tool in her work, she hopes to unearth new ways of making art that is environmentally conscious.
