Erica Palman is a New York City transplant, internationally published photographer, portrait storyteller, and visual poet. Having been a talented portrait sketch artist since childhood, she honed in on her artistic skills at the Fashion Institute of Technology where she received her degree in Fine Arts in 2005.

Her portraiture style highlights her tenderness towards human emotion, inspiration for the Ciaroscuro lighting of the Renaissance, and enhances the elegance of contrasted imagery. Tenderly known as the "Black Sheep" of portraiture, her love for the arts has been driven by an insatiable need to express the darkest and most beautiful parts of a bedeviled artists mind.
