Erika Lecchi (of Erika Her Art) was born on 11 May 1983, in a small town near Bergamo, in the North of Italy.
Influenced by her painter-musician father and portrait artist sister, her passion for art and design came to her at an early age.
At 13, she chose to study at the Universal Mode professional fashion institute in Bergamo, but decided not to take her studies further.
She abandoned art for a few years, only to rediscover it in 2006 and since then her work has been in continuous transmogrification.
