Erika Nelson is an independent artist and educator, exploring visionary art environments and the fringes of American culture. When not on the road crisscrossing the country in search of vernacular architecture or immersive art sites, she writes articles for art and travel magazines, creates site-specific temporary art experiences, and acts as a creative catalyst for rural communities. Based in Lucas, KS, she has most recently been found on-site in rural Georgia as part of a folk art preservation team. Ever elusive, additional sightings have been reported in Minnesota, Idaho, South Dakota, Wyoming, and her adopted home state of Kansas.
