Angela is from Bandon, Co. Cork. A prolific portrait artist, Angela works primarily with pastel pencils on paper and treated wood. She says ‘I like to work on portraits of my people in L’Arche because they are all my friends. It makes me happy to draw them because they are the people l live with, work with and share my life with.’
Her portraits are highly-worked, showing an instinctive approach to pattern. They capture details of her friend’s personalities with great warmth.
In 2022, Angela was commissioned to create new site-specific art work for Muine Bheag Arts in Carlow. Angela’s previous projects include participating in exhibitions at Crawford Art Gallery, Wandesford Quay Gallery, Cork, Southbank Centre, London, Gallerie Outsider Art, Amsterdam, Belconnel Arts Centre, Canberra, Paul Bardwell Gallery, Columbia, Galway Arts Centre, The Museum of Everything, London, HAI New York, Flat Iron Gallery, New York and Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh. Angela worked as an artist in residence at Mayfield Arts Centre for almost a decade as part of the Cúig studio programme.
