Neil moved to Vernon, B.C. with his wife Sherrie, and two children; Jessie & Axel, in 2006 where he put his painting on the back burner for several years to renovate a 1935 heritage home and property. Erickson established a studio space for his art and a yoga studio for Sherrie. His plans are to open an art school at his location next spring. Additionally, Neil and Sherrie host guests in their guest house “Little House on Pottery Road” and concerts of touring Canadian musicians. A creative couple, a creative life!
