Robin was born on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico where she spent the first ten years of her life. She enjoyed a vibrant childhood strongly influencing her outlook on the world, particularly in the depiction of colour and texture … both important aspects of her paintings today. Since a very young age She felt this passion for art. In her various studies as she became more serious She had the freedom to develop and experiment with painting techniques. She completed my BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Bath Spa University College in 2003.
Robin Eckardt has a deep interest in the world and the environment around her and although the work is, to an extent, impressionistic, she also aims to capture the figurative and the very essence of reality. Consequently Robin has developed a style of contemporary painting that is quite textured and highly tactile with many layers of translucent glazes. Her aim is to stimulate the viewer’s senses and imagination.
She has mainly painted cityscapes, skylines and landscapes from images that have been inspiring. Choosing the more obscure views for added interest … for example aerial views for perspective … or scenes involving movement … or have an interesting play on light, such as reflections.
