Angela Sharkey picture

Angela Sharkey

Pennsylvania, USA

Angela creates brilliantly colorful, abstract and imaginative paintings using several different mediums in her work as she captures an energy and texture on her canvases. Painting on both small and large sized canvases her works are graphic and whimsical in nature. Drawing on her abundant memories of travels and a life of moving around the world she imbues these visions and impressions in her paintings as she tells us a story through her art.

Her balance of design, line, and color in her paintings is a reflection of her graphic design background. Her process of painting with acrylics, oil, oil pastel, and artist tissue paper on the canvas creates layers of textural interest along with her symbolic and gestural mark-making. Her paintings have a tactile texture; inviting the viewer in to take a deeper look.
