Trees and the human form have become Angela’s great fascination.
Through the emotional play of light, she seeks to create a narrative between trees and people and see these majestic and amenable souls as a positive reflection of ourselves. She’s interested in how pathways through trees seem to parallel our lives. A yearning for stability to stay on the path, yet a need to wonder into the uncertainty and unknown.
Like layers of patterned leaves, paint marks are built up onto the canvas, combining an impressionistic and representational style of painting.
Having tried a variety of media, Julia currently prefers acrylics and is interested in painting anything which catches her eye, especially landscapes. She loves to use fast, expressive brush strokes to convey a sense of freedom and movement in order to bring to life the extraordinary beauty of the natural world. She particularly enjoys painting ‘en plein air’ and recently spent four weeks in Andalusia painting seascapes.
