Eryn Tehan was raised in Portland, Oregon, and graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor’s in Journalism. She is best known for her modern, impressionist paintings with bold palette knife textures, and thick applications of intensely colorful oil paint. Her deep connection to the natural world, passion for exploration and sharing experiences, inspires her work.
Wielding only palette knives, Eryn creates chunky, visible thickness, adding to her unique style. One of the goals in her paintings, is to spotlight hidden colors in flora, creating powerful emotional responses and new ways of seeing and experiencing natural beauty.
A painter for only a few short years, she has quickly expanded her career. Of note, she has shown work at Adelman Fine Art Gallery in San Diego, CA, Ford Gallery, Alberta Street Gallery, The Lakewood Center for the Arts, The Oregon Society of Artists, 510 Museum, CHP Galleries, and has worked with The Chelsea Hicks Foundation, Step It Up PDX, and The International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines. Her work is held in private collections across the United States.
