Exclusive pieces from artist Erica Sturla.
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 the simple pleasures of everyday life - the joy is in creating a painting that celebrates the familiar in a new and exciting way.
Erica shows work in several galleries across the UK and undertakes an increasing number of private commissions every year. Her designs appear in children’s books, several ranges of greetings cards and products for the home. She is very proud to have cards in the British Museum and tea towels in the tower of London!
Trained in Fashion illustration/journalism and a member of the Association of Illustrators for many years, Erica also creates digital drawings. A current project is The Great British Seaside series - A virtual tour of the coast as seen from the sea.
We are delighted to have her work here in our gallery!
