Erin Hammond's free-form figurative expressionism paintings allow her female representations to express their inner, subjective realities. She brings her figures to life with an exploration of color, form, and composition saturated with a distinctive set of representational characteristics, non-objective features, and recognizable poses. Her original artworks emphasize deeply thoughtful portraits and the softness of women in a moment of contemplation and reflection.

Hammond focuses "on the roughness of line and the immediate processes of painting”. “As we are unfinished beings, in the process of completion, my compositions reflect that concept as I overlap with paint and pencil lines, heavily layering some areas while leaving other areas open.” She uses the unfinished elements of her aesthetic to explore the contemporary fascination with (im)perfection latent in those professions. She creates society portraits through the syntaxes of the fashion sketch and abstraction. By alternating layers of pencil and acrylic, she combines an active interest in the female body with experiments in color, calligraphic elements, and shading.
