She takes the things of everyday life and combines them with the beauty of nature and inner feeling. The use of vivid colours captures the energy, moods and rhythm on the canvas. With her brush, Angela blends natural and abstract forms to create emotional landscapes. Angela communicates through her paintings, seeing them as a dialogue with the world.
