About Erin Mauterer

MY NAME is Erin Mauterer, and I’m a professional illustrator and portrait artist. I've been an artist all my life, thanks to good genes from my parents. My father, Lt. Col. A. Michael Leahy III was a pilot and professional combat artist with the United States Marine Corps. As a kid, I remember evenings at the kitchen table, with pencils, paper and a flashlight, he taught us the basics of drawing, composition, shadow and form. These simple tasks have made me the artist I am today with a lifelong career in art. I've worked in advertising, graphics, and printing, and I’ve illustrated many children’s books and magazines. I illustrated a series of children's books written by one of The Oak Ridge Boys, Joseph S. Bonsall, about his beloved cat, Molly. Animals and characters have always been my first, best love. It's been said my artwork is whimsical. My interest is in the character and story of animals. Copying a photo is one thing. Figuring out what's "going on under that fur," as my father used to say, is far more important, since it brings out the true character of the animal. So with that, I accept your commission to paint your pets and thank you in advance for the opportunity.
