Erika Steiskal grew up in Canfield, Ohio. She studied illustration at the Columbus College of Art and Design (BFA, 2006) and at the Illustration Academy in Sarasota. Over the next three years, she worked as a concept artist for Root Learning, a business consulting firm in Toledo, Ohio.

Erika lives in Seattle with her husband, who teaches political science at the University of Washington. You can usually find Erika sketching the denizens of a neighborhood café while downing scandalous quantities of tea. When the subjects get wise—and stiffen up—Erika turns to reading, traveling, and long meandering walks around Seattle that in no way resemble getting lost. Really.
