Erika Stanley

Dutch – Costa Rican artist Erika Stanley grew up surrounded by artists. That inspired Erika to become an artist herself at an early age.
Erika created various art series in her own style which were exposed and sold in several countries. 
In addition, Erika has become known as a specialist in the style of Vincent Van Gogh. She paints modern day city scapes and objects that many people value in Van Gogh style. She started her own brand for this which is internationally known as Like Van Gogh and, in The Netherlands, as Als Van Gogh.
