Degrees and Certifications:

Erika Botfeld

I’m an Orlando, FL native and our family is new to Raleigh from Tampa, FL. My husband and I have been married for 18 years and we have two teenage girls, ages 12 and 15. This will be my first year teaching art and I couldn’t feel any more “at home.” Since then, I have worked as an art director in many different capacities –– from old-school print newspapers to magazines to advertising agencies. Most recently, I ran my own photography business for 15+ years. I have mainly photographed children and families, but also found a passion for food and restaurant photography. I love to eat/cook good food as well as work in my garden.

My Education

BA Degree in Visual Communications from the University of South Florida in 1995.
