Erica is a San Francisco native and has spent much of her working life as an artist in the area while supporting new families and babies as a birth doula. Being a doula has shaped how she sees the world in many ways.
In 2018, she began her studies in ‘End of life’ work. This topic became more fascinating to her as she questioned, “What happens when we die? Do we have choices and plans to make?” and more importantly, “What legacy do I want to leave behind for my daughters, and how do I want to be remembered?”
While birth has been the center of her life for over 20 years, she has felt a strong calling to serve those transitioning at the end of life and to make her art. She began to creatively explore her experience as a birth doula and holistic practitioner towards this new calling; legacy and memorial art, services and support. Erica completed her end of life doula certification in 2019 from Doulagivers International.
Erica’s artistic medium is resin where she is able to encapsulate incredible treasures or mementos out of cremains, dried flowers, photographs, or personal trinkets (such as buttons from your loved ones shirt, old jewelry, or beads… really anything you can imagine).
Erica is excited to walk along this path with you and help you to create a beautiful, meaningful jewelry art piece that will be treasured forever.
