Erika Gagnon is a Canadian multi-media artist of mixed blood heritage, which includes French Canadian, Japanese and Native American ancestry.   Both of her parents were actively involved in the arts, and she was surrounded by art in its many forms from an early age.

   Officially, Gagnon holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, honors in Graphic Design from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada and worked years as a graphic designer, but she has always had a deep love for all of the visual arts, and is also a photographer, painter and multimedia artist.  She strongly believes in the healing potential of visual art and many of her artistic creations reflect her deep love of nature, justice and humanity.

Gagnon recently began exploring the digital arts and especially photo composite work,"I am now experiencing a fusion of my photography, painting and design, where I can further push the boundaries of my imagination and expand my creative vision".

She is currently working on her first photography book on “The Dragon Tree”, a prehistoric tree found only in the Macaronesia region and specifically in the Canary Islands, Spain.
