Angela Hawkey

Art has always been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was first introduced to oil painting by my Grandfather, who was an extremely talented landscape artist.
Growing up art is what gave me confidence, made me feel relaxed and challenged me at the same time, I guess that’s why I kept creating and still love it today.

I take a messy, unplanned and free flowing approach to my art. Even when starting with a subject or idea in mind, I freely deviate from the plan. I love the unexpected surprises and naturalness that comes from a relaxed style of painting. I cannot have too much paint on the canvas. Thick buttery paint layered on with a palette knife gives it that extra dimension. For me art is all about colour and texture.

Sneaky slightly obscured landscape views are my favorite to paint. a glimpse of paradise but not yet fully revealed. A secret and beautiful place just beyond the trees.
