Angela was born in Chester, attended the Queen's School followed by the Froebel Educational Institute, Roehampton. She worked in a number of schools in London, specialising in art and craft, particularly pottery, which she taught to both junior school children and adults.
Family life has taken her to Germany, Northern Ireland and the United States of America, and it was while living in Washington DC that she began to specialise in watercolour painting at the Torpedo Factory Art School in Alexandria.
After thirty four house moves, Angela and her husband retired back to Chester, where she began to design her own garden to include many of the plants and flowers that she loves to paint. Her paintings take their inspiration, not only from Angela's garden, but also from a very personal and eclectic mixture of objects and places that have been part of the diverse pattern of her life. She has exhibited in Germany and the US. Her most recent exhibitions were in October 2009 at Ness Gardens and September 2010 at the National Trust property Erddig in North Wales.
The creation of a painting closely resembles a journey. You begin to plan your route but diversions along the way reveal unexpected delights and stretch the imagination. Sometimes it is the way colours interacts with each other to produce that magical effect you thought was impossible and other times your knowledge of technique allows you to push the boundaries a little bit further . It is a combination of the interaction of light, paper and pigment, and the ability of watercolour to portray mood and atmosphere that makes it the most fascinating of all media.
