Erin Minckley is a visual artist based in Chicago, IL.
Minckley founded Relativity Textiles in 2015 with the help of a Kickstarter campaign. Her drawings and hand painted artworks are the basis for each design. With an MFA in Fiber and Materials Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and ten years experience working in the manufacturing industry, Minckley uses her research and printing know-how to design globally inspired motifs with cultural narratives that span the globe. Connecting homeowners to foreign cultures by way of wallpaper motivates Minckley to pay homage to the craftsmen and women of the world. The wallpapers used are almost all screen printed by hand, but when printed digitally use the best paper substrates on the market in an effort to be durable and also eco-friendly.
