"I was inspired to become an artist in my early years of employment at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. While wandering the great halls of the Metropolitan I was immensely intrigued by the great masters and the style of realism. Therefore, I sought my education in the masters tradition of academic realism. My strong points have always been the portrait and figure, however, since retirement, there has been more focus on still life and plein air landscape painting. Whether it be in my studio, outdoors, or sketch groups, I love being able to dedicate each and every day to the ‘art of creating’."

Angela received her education in academic realism at The Reilly League of Artists Inc. under Cesare Borgia; including portrait, figure, picture making, still life and landscapes in various mediums and styles with particular emphasis on oil techniques. She continues independent studies through various workshops and demonstration lecture series, as she believes an art education is a lifetime adventure. Since 1978, Angela has built an impressive body of work, and exhibited in juried and group shows. Her works hang in many private collections. She is currently affiliated with the Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists, Salmagundi Club and C. L. Wolfe Art Club, etc. She continues to find many rewards teaching drawing and painting to teens and adults.
