graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, began her current series of portraits in mid 2008. Originally entitled Baltimore Portrait, this body of work now contains over 100 paintings and drawings of notable artists, musicians, business people, and Fitzpatrick’s peers. She views this project as “people collecting,” as it is as much about meeting and documenting new subjects, as it is about the paintings themselves. Exhibiting extensively in solo and group shows, she has gained collectors throughout the United States and in Europe.
With no foreseeable end to this project, Fitzpatrick looks forward to adding many new people to her visual network. Fitzbomb showcases the people she paints while giving a glimpse into her life in the outside world.
When Erin is not in her studio she is probably somewhere by a pool, reading so many books, getting a fake tan, listening to rap music or the Rolling Stones, traveling, watching/listening to/talking about baseball, and/or all of the above.
