It’s been a long time coming that Angela would really venture into the realm of fiber. During a textiles summer class, only months before receiving her bachelor degree for painting, there was pondering on the chosen path, of changing the path to a fiber/textile focus. But as late in college as it was, and given that Angela was already pushing to many years in school, she maintained focus on painting.
Finally the right time, she began learning to hand spin January 2018. Working with spinning wheels and hand spindles instantly became an everyday affair, a way of life. Later in 2018, she started hand-processing from raw wool. May 2019, she found handspun yarns complimentary to her watercolor painting and will continue to experiment with this visual textural mix.
New fiber sections on this website are in the works (2019) to share her fiber journey, highlight and make available some of her fiber projects and yarns.
In addition to working with fiber, Angela is a painter. Her most recent painting work explores the idea of memories. The importance of memories to individuals as well as to the masses over a period of time. What does a memory look like once it transforms from the moment, gets internalized and then represented on canvas or paper. Putting some thought into “What kind of memories are we making? How long will they last? Why are they important?”
