My name is Erik Railton, I’m 44 years old, and I’ve been painting for 18 years. I was raised in Cannon Beach, Oregon. I now live in Portland, Oregon.
While growing up on the Oregon coast I found myself spending time outside in nature. I love the color, texture and shapes of plants and other objects that I saw outdoors. I enjoy using abstract and realistic values in my paintings so that the viewer contemplates where the painting exists in the real world. The colors I choose often are simple but bold and graphic.
I have shown in gallery's in Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, and New York.
