Born in a small town in Northern Alberta, Angie grew up with an intense desire to draw, paint and sketch. Her close contact with the wild and rugged North made a lasting impression, with trips to the Rockies making her desire to study and paint nature stronger.
Although primarily self-taught in watercolor, Angie also works with oils and acrylics. She has a keen eye for detail, and as a Registered Massage Therapist has studied human anatomy extensively. With this eye for detail, she is most prolific with her portraiture and figurative work.
Angie has won numerous awards for her artwork, and has completed many challenging commercial pieces. She has been commissioned to paint over 100 portraits, mostly of children, in her signature technique-- a loose but skillful and accurate watercolor collage format.
Angie’s inspiration comes from the beauty of her life and the Canadian wilderness. Her unique style and use of vivid colours capture the warmth, light, and sentiment of the majestic Western Canadian landscapes.
Currently, Angie’s art is on display at Full Circle in Calgary, as well as her private studio. If interested, Angie would be thrilled to meet you to present her artwork for viewing. Click here to get in touch.
