Erica Ankers

Erica was drawn to illustration from a young age and has been painting since college. She spent 15 years working as a Graphic Designer before deciding to return to her passion in art.

Working largely in soft pastels, focusing on colour and texture, Erica is drawn to art that evokes emotion and atmosphere; equally inspired by a beautiful sunset as a moody storm. She creates land and seascapes that evoke the natural beauty, atmosphere and joy found in the everyday of her surroundings in Devon and Cornwall. Blurring the edges between abstract and reality, preferring rather to focus on the colours and emotions of a scene.
