b Gallery art directory welcomes the amazing talents of Angela Corben

Angela tells us in her own words about her art:

I am a painter and art teacher and I deliver art lessons and workshops to children and adults, with several years experience of teaching art in secondary school.

My specialism is painting landscapes and flowers in acrylics. I find this exciting medium suits my expressive style. Sometimes I paint with oils, sometimes mixed media and collage in order to experiment more.

My work is formed by a close observation of nature and is figurative with a strong sense of expression. Drawing is integral to my work and I make numerous sketches and colour studies before creating my painting. I am happiest when painting outdoors and this is when I feel truly connected with the landscape. I paint on site in all weather conditions as this is the best way to observe the weather and experience the mood. I have several sites which I visit time and time again in the New Forest and around the Wiltshire/Dorset downs, and through observation over time I have evolved a deep connection with the spirit of these places which I hope I bring to my paintings.

I am interested in the journey towards Abstraction and enjoy pushing some of my draft paintings and sketches to become as simplistic and expressive as I can so that they are verging on the Abstract.

Please visit my website to view new work via my blog or to see what we are working on in my classes for adults and children.
