Scott Erickson is a touring painter, performance speaker, and creative curate who mixes autobiography, mythology, and aesthetics to create art and moments that speak to our deepest experiences.
As a speaker, Scott brings his training as an educator and his experience as a visual communicator to all of his presentations. Wrestling with his own professional burnout and clinical depression, Scott believes in turning your deepest pain into something that can be restorative. He did just that in writing his first touring one man show We Are Not Troubled Guests in which he navigates the surprising gift of an existential crisis through storytelling, live painting, and video curation. His most recent multi-media performance piece is called Say Yes: A Liturgy of Not Giving Up on Yourself.
Scott is the author of Say Yes: Discover the Surprising Life beyond the Death of a Dream (January 2022), Honest Advent: Awakening to the Wonder of God-with-Us Then, Here, and Now, and co-author of PRAYER: 40 Days of Practice and MAY IT BE SO: Forty Days with the Lord’s Prayer with Justin McRoberts. He is a trained Spiritual Director to brave women and men, and a professional dishwasher for his food blogging wife.
