Seaside Rendezvous : A mixed media exhibition by Erica Sturla
09 Jun 2018 - 30 Jun 2018
Erica works in polymer clay and acrylics to create figurative, three dimensional scenes. She enjoys the humour, colour and movement that creating the figures in clay brings to her subjects and this contrasts with the more studied approach of the background painting. Inspirations are firmly rooted in everyday life and spring from a love of life lived beside the sea. The joy is in creating a painting that celebrates the familiar in a new way.
Trained in Fashion illustration/journalism and a member of the Association of Illustrators for many years, Erica also creates digital drawings. It’s a very different technique that uses layer upon layer of flat shape and colour to build vibrant and busy scenes. Current projects include a celebratory Rendezvous with some of the coastal towns that make up The Great British Seaside, taking in Margate and Broadstairs along the way!
