About the Artist

Hi, I'm Angela, and I'm glad you're here! I'm an internationally published and 3x nationally awarded artist. Working as a professional artist, married with 3 kids, and being a HSP (highly sensitive person), life can definitely feel chaotic at times (so making art that brings the REFRESHMENT of nature into our everyday environment is extra important to me!) I paint mostly landscapes and florals in my St Louis area studio.

About My Art

I create textural, nostalgic nature paintings that celebrate the interplay of light and air. Using knives, bristle brushes, & paint, I merge Impressionism with modern mark-making. Sometimes in acrylic and sometimes in oil, I work in textural paint layers with sweeping strokes.

My art is inspired by the universal human need for renewal and expanse through nature, in a world overcome by hustle and distraction. My art is about slowing down to really appreciate the beauty around us, as a way to recenter and refresh our BUSY modern minds.

Awards + Publications

My work has been awarded and published nationally and internationally by the likes of the International Drawing Annual, Southwest Art Magazine, Strokes of Genius AnnualAmerican Artist Drawing Magazine, and the prestigious Oil Painters of America. My art has also been featured on Fox 2 News.  


As someone who's lived in 12 states and 2 countries, I've always felt the sky has this universal, awe-inspiring appeal. It comforts me, and I want that comforting feeling to come through to others. A lot of my recent work has focused on skies as a result, and feature an "encircling" effect with the brushstrokes I use.


My childhood idea of a perfect day: create something, do some people-watching, and take in the sunset. Not much has changed, but now I view beauty in the natural world not as an end in itself, but more as a window to the greater beauty I find in the world's Creator. C.S. Lewis says of the times we experience beauty in the world:

"For they are not the thing itself; they are only the scent of a flower we have not found, the echo of a tune we have not heard, news from a country we have never yet visited."

When I paint, I feel a sense of both connectedness and longing, like there's more out there than what I'm seeing in the natural world. I hope that comes through.


I was really blessed to find a rigorous classical art program and mentors at a liberal arts college in Florida, where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Commercial Art and my MFA in Studio Painting. Since graduation, I’ve been working as a professional artist, creating paintings in the tradition of Impressionism.

I feel humbled to be painting as a vocation, and deeply grateful for all the people that have supported my work over the years. I still find it amazing that pieces of my creativity get to live in and enrich people's homes around the world.
