ABOUT THE ARTIST
Angela is a British artist whose formative years were spent in North Yorkshire and London. In 2014, she relocated from London to the inspiring surroundings of North Gloucestershire - known as "an area of outstanding natural beauty". Angela has travelled widely throughout the UK and abroad, visiting varied and contrasting landscapes, art collections and artists. She has also studied the history of art extensively and has a PhD in Art History and Museum Studies. Currently she is completing a book which reflects upon the role of the contemporary artist, as well as a collection of short stories dedicated to trees.
