Erika Hewston is a Textile artist located in Pennsylvania who creates woven and quilted pieces. Growing up around her mother and grandmother greatly influenced her love of craft.  She began quilting by the age of 9 and was introduced to weaving her senior year of high school leading her to concentrate in Textiles and Material Studies for her BFA, which she earned from Kutztown University in 2018.  Erika also earned a BSBA in Business Management at that time, and has since earned her Masters in Arts Administration from Kutztown University in 2024.  


Erika currently serves as the Retail and Gallery Exhibitions Director for Peters Valley School of Craft in Layton, New Jersey.  In this role, she gets to develop and coordinate exhibitions and special events as well as work with artists to showcase and sell their work in the gallery storeroom.  She is striving to increase accessibility to the traditional exhibition space by incorporating touch elements and audio descriptions whenever possible.


Her woven work has been exhibited extensively in local galleries and she will be emerging into the international market during London Craft Week in 2024.  Along with exhibitions, she has sold her work at in person fine craft fairs in the Northeastern United States including at the American Craft Council Baltimore Craft Show, Smithsonian Craft: Fashion & Home, and the Academy Art Museum Craft Show.
