Erika Huddleston is a Texas artist who attended the University of Texas at Austin for a
Masters in Landscape Architecture as well as the Parsons School of Design in New York City. She is a contributor to Aether Art Journal and Texas Architect Magazine—writing about the overlap of urban design and fine art. Texas Monthly in Spring 2017 included her in their list of the top ten Texas artists to collect now. Huddleston was selected as a 2015 Hunting Prize finalist. In 2013-2014, she was an artist with bcWORKSHOP for the ten-month public art “Activating Vacancy” project in the Tenth Street Historic District in Dallas—funded partially by the National Endowment for the Arts. She was artist-in-residence with the Shoal Creek Conservancy in Austin in 2014 and her paintings and maps of Waco Creek were shown at the Mayborn Museum, Baylor University, with the Art Center of Waco in 2017. She has painted major bodies on work onsite in public parks along Waco Creek in Waco, Texas, Shoal Creek in Austin, Texas, the Trinity River in
Dallas, Texas, and most recently in the Ramble in Central Park in New York City.
Huddleston says of her paintings which record phenomena in “urban wilderness”: “I paint in one place to record what cannot be seen on a map but which does exist.”
