Angela grew up on a farming property at Kalangadoo during the seventies and eighties, attending Kalangadoo Primary School and Penola High School.
From a young age she was drawn to Visual Art, particularly drawing and painting and was introduced to china painting and acrylic landscape painting as a child by her grandmother, Beryl Widdison.
She studied Junior Primary Teaching at Magill College of Advanced Education in Adelaide, in the late eighties. During this time she was keen to explore different art mediums, so majored in ceramics (pottery), learning how to produce functional ware on a pottery wheel and particularly enjoyed hand building with clay.
Her interest in Visual Art was ignited again in 2011, when she enrolled in Visual Art courses at Tafe, under the guidance of Anne Carpenter and Debra Rogers. In 2013 she completed a Certificate 3 in Visual Art and coordinated the final Tafe exhibition at the Riddoch Art Gallery.
Angela currently enjoys the challenge of Life Drawing, building her skills at drawing the human figure. Her preferred drawing mediums include charcoal, pastel, graphite, ink and she prefers to paint using gouache and acrylic.
