Angela received her formal training in fine arts at the University of Manitoba graduating with a BFA Honours, majoring in painting and ceramics. Her professional career in the arts started with portraiture sculpture. She quickly gained a reputation for her work and was commissioned privately and publicly.
After moving to Victoria in 1995, Angela changed her direction from portraiture to sculptural raku teapots and a porcelain functional line that were represented by galleries in Victoria, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Manitoba and Waterloo, Ontario. Her ceramic work was collected internationally.
For the past 8 years she has focused on painting portraits but has also explored other subjects along the way. Presently, she has been producing abstract work. Her palette is bold and vibrant and possesses a high quality of energy. Her work is influenced by Vincent Van Gogh (for his use of colour and pulsating brush strokes), Gerhart Richter (for his unbridled movement of paint), Yayoi Kusama (for her colour and playfulness).
