Hi! I'm Erin.

I'm a Minneapolis based illustrator and card designer obsessed with all things paper. I love snail mail and feel it creates connection, conveys feeling, and overall makes you feel good. I mean who doesn't love getting something fun in the mail?

 After more years than I care to admit, I left corporate America to follow my passion and turn my side hustle into a full time gig.  I've always been creative, I just didn't realize it was something special.  I took for granted how things "just came to me" whether it be with clothes, homes, or on paper. It wasn't until I started sharing what I know with others that I realized not everyone has it. And that's how Denim and Ink got started. What began as a fashion blog (and way for me to maximize my closet), morphed into a card/craft blog, and finally what you see here.

I'm a student of life and always looking to try new things. Skillshare is my jam. I could spend days teaching myself stuff.  I'm a  dog lover.  You could say it's an obsession.  I have 2 big dogs and they are my life (along with my husband!).  Rhaegar (yes, he's named from Game of Thrones) is a 18mo German Shepard with more energy than I can burn off him in a day, and Brooklyn is  a 6 yr old English Bulldog who thinks she's human and just wants to snuggle. You can find me walking or running them daily. I'm a reformed shopping addict, currently channeling my love of clothes into illustrations instead of purchases - I think it's working so far!

Now that you know a bit more about me, I'd love to get to know you and see what I can create for you.
