Erika Pochybova-Johnson

Erika won the Psychedelic Contest hosted by the Sacred Muse.
143 Pieces of art were submitted to the contest and 104 votes were tallied all together.

Her art is intricate, beautiful and amazing.
I hope you enjoy her art as much as I have.

This is the Winning Piece from the contest.

Erika was born in former Czechoslovakia.
She immigrated to Texas in late 1996 and became a U.S. citizen in 2006. Erika's work utilizes an intricate painting technique and metaphoric imagery.
Erika has developed a very unique style that blends contemporary aesthetics with European folk art.
Pochybova Johnson’s story and her artwork were featured in the Slovakian national public
ation, “New Time Sunday” and in the Creative Quarterly #13 and Creative Quarterly #16 national publications. Recently, Erika received the Silver and Merit Award in a New York City based national competition, the 2nd place Award in the “Texas National” competition juried by a nationally recognized artist Mel Chin, the 2nd place Award in a Houston based national competition “Texas Art 2009” juried by Shelly Langdale, Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings in Philadelphia Museum of Art, and a First place Award in a 2008 New Arts Perspective Competition.
