Local Atlanta Artist Erin Tapp

Local Atlanta Artist Erin Tapp

“Whatever the medium, I just have this pull to create something extraordinary from the ordinary. I want to bring the world joy, and I think ultimately that’s what my work comes down to whether that is found in a commission of someone’s dog, a brightly colored abstract, or a doodle on a note, I want someone to see it and to feel that same amount of joy that I get from its creation.” 

From abstracts to places to objects, local Atlanta artist Erin Tapp creates something joyful in her artwork you can connect with by capturing a subject’s whoa factor: “adding colors, light and happy patterns to places they do not naturally occur, excavating light patterns and creating harmony between similar forms and marks.” By marrying impressionism, expressing the essence of a thing, and expressionism, expressing personal emotions tied to a specific thing, Erin’s artwork is made to evoke an emotional response from you.

Like you, local Atlanta artist Erin Tapp loves the Atlanta BeltLine craze. From her studio on the BeltLine’s Eastside Trail, she elevates the ordinary to the extraordinary, similar to how the BeltLine project revived overlooked parts of the city to become Atlanta’s main attraction. Like the BeltLine, her artwork is “surrounded by energy and joy, observant of and attentive to details often overlooked, and versatile in its personality and mood.” Erin is part of the fresh wave of artists, doers and spaces in Atlanta modernizing the sporty, nostalgic & iconic ‘90s vibe of the city.

Erin illustrated your BeltLine stories for Mayor’s new BeltLine Mania button-down. Erin’s wearable artwork radiates the essence of the BeltLine wherever you wear it.

In a series of watercolor & ink sketches, Erin chose a modernized toile style for the boldly outlined but colorful motifs on an industrial background of the BeltLine you love to release the emotions of your story with unparalleled detail, as if you are there, in the story:

Hopping from Park Tavern to Victory to Ladybird with your pup as an entire metropolitan area seems to descend upon the latest grand opening for some day-drinking. Jamming to live music all day at the festivals in the parks from Old Fourth Ward to Piedmont beneath the Georgia sun. Catching the sunset from the upstairs deck at New Realm, followed by date night on top of Ponce & a late-dinner at Krog.

Like you, Erin loves the secluded coastal retreat of Sea Island. Our clients, Alexa & Matt, wanted to give their Sea Island wedding guests a thank you gift. Their guests would elevate an ordinary weekend in late February into an extraordinary experience, similar to how Erin’s artwork elevates the ordinary to the extraordinary. 

Erin illustrated their Sea Island story for Mayor’s new Sea Island Retreat button-downs. Erin’s wearable artwork radiates the essence of Georgia’s Sea Island wherever you wear it.

In an ink pen drawing, Erin chose the elegant toile style for the blue and green motifs on a crisp white background of the Sea Island you love to release the emotions of your story with unparalleled detail, as if you are there, in the story:

Experiencing this secluded coastal retreat for the first time at a lovely couple’s dream wedding weekend: from Low Country Boils to shooting clay targets to witnessing the newlyweds take their vows in the Cloister garden. 

Relaxing on a romantic getaway of rejuvenating mornings at the spa, long horseback rides on sandy beaches, afternoons at the beach club pool, sunset cruises through the marsh and candlelit dinners in the Cloister wine cellar. 

Reliving childhood memories with generations of family: watching sea turtles & walking dogs on the beach, fishing in the rivers & gulf stream, golfing championship courses, afternoons of sailing & tennis, kayaking through rivers & marsh and hopping on the Jeep Train for supper.
