Meet Erin Summer!

Hi guys! My name is Erin and I am an artist, photographer and content creator from Toronto, Canada. I just love to spread and share joy and positive vibes with art and creativity. I am so happy to be partnering with Creatively Squared and I can’t wait to see what the community creates this week!

Q&A with Erin

How would you describe your creative style?
Colorful, whimsical and optimistic with a touch of humour

What kind of equipment do you use?
For my photography I use a Nikon D3300 camera and I edit everything in Adobe Photoshop on my MacBook. As for my studio I have a very basic set up with a fabric backdrop and some cheap not-so-great lighting. I still rely on natural light for almost everything I shoot!

Can you tell us why the challenge theme ‘Bright’ resonates with you?
I find bright colours so uplifting. Using colour to inspire and make someone smile is always my number one goal when I am creating a visual. I’m excited to see how the creatively squared participants use bright colours to spread joy this week!

Can you share some of your favourite images you have created and tell us why you love them?

It’s so ridiculous, I just love how you look at it and can’t help but laugh

I just love the colours here. I love how simple the concept is, but it really pops

I love it mostly because other people really responded to it. When my work speaks to others in becomes a lot more important to me!
