In 1998 Angela returned to her Yorkshire roots to pursue her life-long interest in painting, having previously practised as a solicitor in Hampshire. Her abstract works evolve from a range of sources; direct observations, lasting memories and in particular the act of painting itself.
Angela enjoys the process of creating compositions from ideas, which provide a starting point but not a pre-conceived vision of the end result. Working predominantly in oil, she lets the paint lead the way. This approach often involves frequent reworking to resolve conflicts and achieve a simplified unity and balance between the colours and shapes and marks on the canvas. Whatever memories and concepts may have been the underlying source of her abstract paintings, Angela believes that the finished image is its own entity, which may be open to varied interpretations depending on its interaction with the individual viewer.
She works from a small studio in her cottage in the picturesque village of Bainbridge.
