About the Artist
Angela has always had a clear vision of herself as a painter. She began painting alongside her grandmother, an accomplished oil and watercolour artist, and has always dabbled in paint and creative arts as a pastime. Once retired from a career in education, she indulged her love of learning and painting by attending numerous courses, workshops and retreats with talented artists and tutors.
She has developed a preference for painting waterscapes, as she has a strong connection to her subject matter. She cites her personal challenge as "capturing the light and reflections on water at various times of the day; using a range of colours and layers of paint, endeavouring to transpose what she sees onto a canvas for others to enjoy". She says, "To gaze at the changing light and colours of an ocean or waterway is the inspiration for her artist soul."
Her painting style has developed from experimenting with the vibrant and translucent colours of acrylic paints and inks and is now her preferred medium. She has moved from a more realistic, traditional style through using paint techniques and a palette knife to achieve a less exact and more impressionistic result. This allows more scope for interpretation by the viewer.
Her paintings are linked by subject: oceans, rivers, lakes, boats and shipwrecks. Some are painted on old wood boards or linen using the colour and texture to accentuate the sand, wood and rust. Others are studies of light and reflections in varying settings in changing light. Use of resins and mixed medium to achieve watery effects are also being used.
She cites her influences as the great impressionists, such as Turner and Monet. She also admires the work of contemporary marine artists; Jane James, Ken Knight, Josef Kote and Scott Nainsmith to name a few.
