About Robin Eckardt:-

Robin Eckardt Artist At The Acorn Gallery, Pocklington

Robin was born on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico where she spent the first ten years of her life. Her vibrant childhood strongly influenced her outlook on the world, particularly in her depiction of colour and texture … both important aspects of her paintings today.

Since a very young age Robin has always had a passion for art, she has enjoyed the freedom to develop and experiment with her painting techniques and completed her BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Bath Spa University College in 2003.

Robin says "I am very interested in the world and the environment around me and although my work is, to an extent, impressionistic, I also aim to capture the figurative and the very essence of reality. Consequently I’ve developed a style of contemporary painting that is quite textured and highly tactile with many layers of translucent glazes. My aim is to stimulate the viewers senses and imagination"
