Erik went to school and studied mostly psychology, and when he graduated, he worked in costume studios constructing theatrical costumes for theater/Broadway. He stopped working in the shops in order to concentrate on his own work.  Most of his work has to do with a disconnection with oneself because of the past. Hiding behind, and never being present.
