Erika Carrillo Brothers – Mexican artist currently residing in the USA, Bachelor of Communication, Information Sciences and fond of painting for more than 22 years. Her interest in iPhoneography, art of creating photos and art with an iPhone, began in 2011 and quickly became her passion. She began to investigate the different options on how to transform and alter her photographs from a mobile device using texture elements and different applications to create images that reflected her imagination and ideas.
Modern applications have been an absolute revolution in photography, opening the opportunity for all of us to be able to create art from a mobile device. Nature and family have been her main sources of inspiration and ideations. Erika emphasizes “… in general my style does not follow a particular format or function. I use the applications that come to mind at the time and experiment repeatedly until I achieve a particular view of the art piece. Interestingly, my method came from experimenting with apps when my iPhone adventure began. At the same time, as my experimentation evolved so did my technique and ability to transform and integrated new art concepts and blends”.

Her works have become part of book covers with prominent publishers and writers, such as the famous Mexican writer Angeles Mastretta, James Patterson of the Alex Cross Thriller series, and the Jane Austen Society with Natalie Janner.
