Meet Erin Myles, one of the artists in the Material Roots exhibition, Erin's work in the show are examples from her Wanderluxe wall hanging collection.
Artist Erin Myles graduated with a BFA in visual design focusing on small metals from UMASS Dartmouth in 2003.
She then entered the costume jewelry industry designing collections for private label brands for over 10 years. She left industry in 2015 to create her own collection and open a small pop-up shop, Asterluxe, on the West End of Providence. At the current moment her time is split between her wall hanging collection, Wanderluxe, interior design and remodeling for clients, hosting her Airbnb in Providence and her shared studio and workshop space, Brave Daughters. She strives to make room for all of her passions in life and resists the fear of trying something new. She lives in Providence with partner Tobin and fresh, little chihuahua, Rosa. Erin currently enjoys working on too many things at once, Yin yoga for help slowing down and a good Gin + Tonic.
About the collection:
Wanderluxe is a collection of objects for modern sanctuary and human form. Artist Erin Myles is informed by her background in costume jewelry design and interior design, and explorations of Reiki and Kundalini yoga. A love of object and adornment coupled with an awareness of space and energy combine to create transcendent objects for your home and body. Each piece is intended to shift the energy of a room through symmetry, pattern, and shape, allowing for an unobstructed opening to beauty and intention. Upcycled, deadstock, and locally sourced materials are used as much as possible for sustainability, lending the work a big mood and a tiny footprint.
