Her easy going personality and green thumb are welcome in the gardening forum. Her sense of humor adds style to OTO. Her skills in sketching what she observes are particularly noteworthy, as is her willingness to offer advice on the subject. She is not shy about letting her mistakes show and shares what she learns through them, which is a refreshing attitude. Her enthusiasm for lunar sketching is infectious. She asks the questions that other's might be shy to ask and puts the answers to good use, and it shows in her work. Erika is generous in her praise of others' success, and eagerly encourages those frustrated by difficulty.
