Artist of the Month for December: Bridget Erickson

Bridget Erickson

I am a senior at Pequot Lakes High School and I have lived here all of my life. Like most young children, I spent the majority of my time playing in the mud, which I still do, but now it’s called pottery. Along with pottery, I also enjoy origami, drawing portraits with charcoal and pencils as well as painting.  

Along with art, I also am very passionate about music. I play piano and percussion.

My future plans include majoring in music. I also plan to own a harp one day.  

When I grow up — OK, when I get older — I plan to become a professional musician, or a homeless street performer if the first doesn’t work out.

I live with my parents, from whom I get my artistic skills. My mother has a wonderful eye for detail and my father also did pottery. My brother lives in St. Cloud. He has no artistic talents.
