Erika Farkas, Self-portrait

Erika Farkas is a self-taught artist with Transylvanian roots living in Ottawa since the late 1980s. Moving to Canada at a time when hi-tech was booming drove her to pursue a technical training, from which she graduated with a degree in electrical engineering.  A career in Information Technology left her with little room for artistic endeavours.

Her eye-opening moment was at the age of 50 when she realized life was too short to let her dreams expire. So, she picked up a pencil and started drawing. She began exhibiting her figurative pencil drawings a year later and has won several awards in local and international art exhibitions. Constantly challenging herself, Erika currently works in a wide range of media: graphite, pastel, acrylic, oil, resin, often mixing several of them together for an enhanced visual effect.

Erika participates in various shows and other artistic events in Ottawa and online. Her works, including a great number of commissioned portraits, can be found in private collections throughout North America and Europe.  For more info on commissioning an artwork, visit her website PortraitsFromPicture.com.

“I am inspired by the beauty of our perceived reality. I can see so much beauty in the smile of a ragged old face, in the innocent expression of a child, in the seductive glance of a person, in the emotional power of a gesture, in the magnificence of the natural world, in the serenity of a still-life, if I don’t just look with my eyes, but also with my heart.  Capturing the essence of this beauty has become my life’s passion and gives me tremendous joy and complete emotional fulfillment.”
