My Story

Hello and welcome! I’m Angela, a Scottish artist and illustrator who loves to create inspiring and uplifting art. Painting is, for me, such a joyful experience where I get to play and experiment from a place of love and freedom. I believe that art created from this place can change the atmosphere of a space, bringing peace, hope and joy into our surroundings. With each piece of art I create, I want to bring a little piece of heaven to earth!

Painting and creativity have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I suppose I never grew out of that childlike delight in splashing bright colours onto paper and canvas. I briefly attended art school as a teenager but just didn’t believe that a full time art career was a realistic option for me. So it became a hobby which I returned to on and off through my years at university and into my career as a librarian. It wasn’t until the lockdown of 2020 that I started to paint in earnest. I found it a source of comfort and hope during a difficult time and wanted to share my art with others to bring some light into the darkness. This continues to be my passion. 

My artwork is mainly inspired by the simple pleasures that surround me, both within and without. The flight of a bird, watching the wild flowers grow, the stars twinkling or simply basking in the glow of a loving God and trying to express what that feels like through my art. Slowing down really helps me to cultivate a deeper attentiveness to the wonder and mystery that surrounds and permeates our lives. It is my hope that my art can inspire you on your journey.

 I live and create from the west coast of Scotland surrounded by family, friends and my ever supportive rescue cat Zion.

Thanks for visiting.
