Primarily a self-taught painter, Angela has had the pleasure of learning from just a few of the many accomplished Canadian and American painters, and draws inspiration from Rothko, Diebenkorn, Avery, Dove and the Group of 7.
Beginning in watercolour was the most natural and comfortable for her as her eye tended to gravitate toward this medium. While the unexpected and unpredictability that makes watercolour exciting and challenging, there is also the desire & curiosity to explore new territory which she is currently doing in acrylic. Working on paper, yupo, canvas and board, Angela works through a variety of techniques and styles that also include oil pastel and inks.
It is her desire to translate the landscape into statements and expression of how she sees nature.
