Erica Deshner Cornwall
As an artist she embraces her love for art, photography and directing. Her favorite creative subjects are centered around athletic activities skateboarding , snowboarding and dance and the memories they provide. She came up with the idea to document and photograph a collection of unique characters with a passion for riding boards 20 years ago. It was 10 years ago she started her journey as a filmmaker after working for a few news stations in the Treasure Valley.
As an artist, a photographer, videographer, she is an active member and contributor to her community. Erica is also, inspired by the world that surrounds her, and the many perspectives that capture the attention of the lenses she uses to document these stories.
“This is my journey. I long to share what I see and hear with a unique perspective that creates conversations between generations. Erica has a clear goal is to achieve the most accurate account and give everyone a chance to share their perspective while researching the facts. She has been a member of the skate and snowboard community in Boise for over 20 years, and I use this passion to fuel my art.”
