Erica Ankers

Erica Ankers is an artist living and working in the South West, taking inspiration from the beauty of nature around her  to create modern abstract landscapes and seascapes. She believes a landscape should not reflect a photographic representation of a scene, but instead capture the mood and emotional connection to the place and moment in time.

She works with soft pastels in a unique style that marries soft blurred tones with bold strong marks. Using vibrant colours, loose textural marks and strong compositions drawn from the light, colours and textures found on her explorations of the sea and countryside, Erica creates semi abstract paintings that allow the viewer to make their own interpretation of the image. Evoking feelings and memories, of special times, people or places that ultimately spark a deep connection with the viewer.
