Meet Erika

Erika Tenney Desert Hippie Arts

Hi! My name is Erika Tenney, and I am the artist at Desert Hippie Arts. I fell in love with fluid art a few years ago when I saw a video on YouTube. That video had stunning colors of paint pouring all over a canvas that created amazing patterns. Ever since that moment, I have self-taught myself numerous art techniques both with paint and resin.

I write about what I’ve learned on my blog at Desert Hippie Arts, and I upload videos on my YouTube channel. I have an amazing husband and two adoring kids that help me with the acrylic paint pouring parties we teach at Monsoons Tap and Grill here in Tucson, Arizona. I also work with my husband as his assistant in our granite countertop company, and we support our local music community by live streaming local bands on our website at Tucson Local Bands.
