Arran Clear Waters I
Original: Mixed Media
Angela moved to Arran in 2003 after a long and successful career heading up an international design and development team for an outdoor clothing brand. She moved to Arran with her family for a calmer life and ran a large guesthouse in Brodick for a number of years.
Although from a design background, Angela only started painting out of necessity in 2007, when a guest whose work covered the guesthouse walls, needed the paintings for an exhibition elsewhere! By coincidence a painting course was advertised in the local paper. This was the start of an all-consuming passion. Many courses followed enabling Angela to develop a unique style of her own.
Angela's paintings are based on Arran landscapes and the feeling they evoke. Colour, flowing line, and shape are very important.
Angela's interest in Cubism and Abstraction can clearly been seen in her artwork and she cites Lyonel Feininger as an influence.
