Angel Painter Artist

Working in oils and acrylics paints for over 30 years, Angel has always been passionate about painting and sharing her expertise with other.

Master at mixing colours and with a simple, down-to-earth approach, she can adapt to a wide range of styles, from modern to abstract to classical, and help you discover the secrets to each one.

Inspired by everyday moments, Angel’s works often contain a hint of humour and sensitivity,  that invites the viewer as a participant in the scene and connection with subject of her art.

My Story

Many, many years ago, I needed a break, something to relieve the stresses of the everyday and let me breathe.
 
I tried yoga: no good. I tried meditation: didn’t work. Badminton: not for me.

 

Disappointed, I finally let my Mom drag me to one of her painting classes.
 
“You might like it,” she said.
 
“Sure, Mom,” I answered just to please her.  I was afraid I wouldn’t be good, but I went anyway.
 
So I sat down at my easel that first time, and a few hours later when the painting class was over, it was as if no time had passed at all.

 

Years later, I can see now that my first painting wasn’t my best, but I had found something that took me out of myself and let me breathe.

 

For three hours at a time, the rest of the world disappeared and it was just me and a group of other students concentrating on our own work and sharing ideas and encouragement.
 
I kept at it. I learned new techniques. I began to master colours. I became more courageous and tried new things. I pushed myself, but at my own pace. And my skills grew.
 
So many of us think “I can’t even draw a straight line! How can I paint anything?”

 

If you think that that is a problem, have another look at a Riopel or a Pollack.

 

Anyway, I was just as reluctant as you might be until I happened to find a teacher who encouraged me, who let me push myself, but who guided me so that whenever I grew discouraged with my own results, I had someone I could trust to help me find another way.
 
If you want to try, I can do the same for you.
 
Who knows? Maybe you should listen to my Mom: “You might like it!”

We find in Angel's paintings a feeling for the subject - very light - which makes the observer a participant in the scene.

Drawing inspiration from scenes of everyday life, Angel’s works often contain a hint of humour and sensitivity,  that invites the viewer as a participant in the scene and connection with subject of her art.
