Erin Garey


The Japanese folklore creature Kitsune is a fox demon, known for as crafty intelligent beings and as possessing paranormal abilities that increase with their age and wisdom. According to Yōkai folklore, all foxes have the ability to shape-shift into human form. While some folktales speak of kitsune employing this ability to trick others – as foxes in folklore often do – other stories portray them as faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and wives.

Erin Garey – Original Artwork
Erin Garey was born in Minneapolis and moved to rural Minnesota when she was 6. There she grew up running around the forests looking for fairy-folk and making up stories. But Minnesota brings long dark winters, so she devoted that time to the devouring of fairy tales, myths, and comic books. This imagery and the narrative elements along with a love of nature continue to inform her work to this day.

After graduating high school, Erin attended Minnesota State University, Moorehead and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts before moving to Minneapolis in 2001. In 2003 Erin moved to Los Angeles and has since worked as a fine artist, freelance illustrator, and Art Director for an after-school art program for children and teenagers. Erin currently lives and works in Echo Park where she continues to search for the fairy-folk and makes up visual stories.
