Erica Hackett

Newburgh, NY

Erica Hackett discovered her love of painting relatively late in life. Mostly self-taught, Erica sites David Garibaldi, Jenny Perez, Denny Dent and an array of graffiti artists, as her artistic influences.

"I needed an outlet. I have always been a creative person. I've always loved to write. I wrote and self-published my first novel, Divas of Dutchess when I was about 23 years old. I have always written plays and poetry. I would doodle here and there, but I actually began painting about three years ago and I just fell in love with it. Just like that, eHart was born."

Primarily working in acrylics and canvas, Erica finds inspiration everywhere from her daily life to pop culture and current events. Erica's bright and colorful paintings are sure to pique the interest and captivate audiences.

“I hope to share my art with the world. Albeit a little cliché, it’s the truth. I paint from my heart and I put my all into every single piece of work that I do. I just want people to see that; to see me. That would be amazing.”

Erica resides in Rockland County, New York with her daughter Jada.
