RICCIO GALLERY SPRING COLLECTION 2023
Born in Shropshire, Angie studied archaeology and then worked in museums and education alongside raising a family. Over the years she discovered a passion for art and started doing short courses with the Open College of the Arts and Leith School of Art. Now retired she is enjoying focusing on her painting. She lives in Innerleithen, Scottish Borders.
Angie is inspired by landscapes rich in natural life. She likes to walk, observing the lie of the land and the changing light at different times of day. The character of individual trees and woodland hold a particular fascination. Sketches made on these walks are a starting point for paintings.
Experimentation then is an important part of the process, playing with form and reacting to the strong emotional response colour gives her. She hopes that her paintings convey some of what she saw and felt as she sat sketching.
