Erica Steiner is a Bay Area-based artist whose work explores the idea that the basic human drive to ornament the material world is fundamentally innate and irresistible.

Her work seeks to use ornamentation as a disciplined and sustained practice and as a means of dialoging with fine art, folk art, and craft traditions such as Indian and Aboriginal painting, psychedelic art, graphic design, medieval Catholic illuminated manuscripts, mid-century modernism and Victorian imagery.
