Artist Concept Statement:
Angela is mainly a textile artist, but often paints fabrics to include in her quilts. Waterloo Region has such a rich tradition of quilting, and painting a picnic table with a crazy quilt design is a great way to call attention to this vibrant tradition.
Reason for Participating in Art Fresco Public Art Project:
Angela has painted furniture in the past, but hasn’t done a project like this in many years. The Art Fresco Project was a great way for her to broaden her horizons and have some fun doing it.
As a self-taught artist, Angela has developed a practice of experimenting with her own ideas. Curiosity and research continually drive her, and for over 20 years she has taken an explorative approach towards art making. Her optimism in life is represented in her art as she finds beauty in even the
most difficult circumstances. As Angela says, “this beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.”
