Erica Van Horn was born in Concord, New Hampshire. The American artist, writer, and bookmaker graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She uses the portability of the printed sheet, mostly in book form, to construct a narrative around the incidental parts of her life. The work now mostly issues through Coracle, a small publishing press based in Ireland, which she directs with Simon Cutts (born 1944), writer, artist, and editor.
