Bio

Angela is a Printmaker and Designer Maker based in Somerset.

Inspiration is never far away- whether treasuring a line in conversation with friends or overhearing fragments of conversation in coffee shops, Angela is attracted to words and phrases of everyday. It is this simplicity of language and how it can evoke emotion and be a cause for conversation in itself that inspires.  Angela works in mono print and lino-cut. Her designs are often made up of dynamic yet simple line, pattern and silhouette and placed with bold colour combinations.

Other themes which are recurring in her work are ideals of home and the home as space and place, and nature - its abstract form and decoration, organic lines, colour and texture.

Angela produces limited edition prints which she exhibits regularly.
Alongside her practise Angela is passionate about teaching print at Bath Artist Printmakers and venues such as the American Museum and the Holburne Museum, Bath.
