Erica Tighe Campbell is the owner and designer of Be A Heart. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from DePaul University in Chicago, Erica moved to Brazil to work for Heart’s Home for a year and a half, then lived and worked in Brooklyn before moving to Los Angeles.
She began teaching herself calligraphy as a creative outlet to combat a time of personal darkness. As her calligraphy and design work began to develop, Erica's Catholic faith and spiritual journey became the guide which inspired most of the work here at Be A Heart.
Calligraphy and art, in many ways, saved Erica's life and it is her passion to share this life-giving work with the world - to create beauty that doesn't point back to herself but leads others to look higher.
Be A Heart has formed a community of people who seek to find God in the midst of every day life and produces goods that are inspired by the beauty of our faith. Following the promptings of the Holy Spirit, these items span from home goods and textiles to baptism gifts and children's toys.
Erica resides with her husband, Paul, and their two young daughters in San Antonio, Texas. The Be A Heart team is comprised of women from all over the country who believe in the mission to be a heart, nothing but a heart.
