I spent my childhood in Buffalo, New York where I graduated from the Buffalo Academy for the Visual andPerforming Arts. A majority of my college education was spent in Chicago, Illinois at Columbia College. While in Chicago, I met my husband and raised 5 children, all while following and supporting his chef lifestyle through moves through a few other states such as Michigan and Arizona, before settling down here, in Southern California.
I am a Wonder-of-a-Woman that has brought all of her passion for the arts together to open my own traveling boutique and studio, integrating shopping, art, and a truck.
My name is Erika Cizma.
The mission of Before I Dye, is to pass on the same passion for the arts that I’ve carried with me my whole life to the next generation.
