Angela began working with stone and clay when studying fine art at the University for the Creative Arts, Canterbury. Her work with palm-sized sculpture was chosen to be on display by a panel at the British Museum (2008-2010). The British Art Medal Society awarded Angela's work a place within the HSBC Gallery for three consecutive years.
Handbuilding has become a firm favourite in Angela's studio, making cups, vases and portrait figurines.
Winner of the Turner Fringe Prize 2019

Chosen and presented by Tracey Emin
Based in Kent and closely connected to the art community in Margate, Angela has been painting watercolours for over 40 years. She has run watercolour classes regularly at the Foyle Rooms of the Turner Contemporary with Steffany on hand to help bring the tea and biscuits. This is a beautiful space for a maximum of 10 people . As soon as it is safe, these classes will be back up and running.
Angela studied part of her BA in Fine Art in Vienna, and has shown her work in the UK, USA and Europe. Her sculptures often start their lives from her drawings of seaside visitors or local residents, much in the style of Quentin Blake. Her more refined pencil work of robins, ravens and squirrels make the perfect limited edition prints.
