Angela Hooper

Painter

I grew up in the North East and although I loved drawing and painting, my grammar school encouraged more ‘academic subjects’.

ABOUT US

 I therefore gave up Art, went to Durham University in the 1960’s to study Sociology and worked in Social Services or the Voluntary Sector until retirement. I moved to Devon and Cornwall during my working life and have made my home here - although I still love visiting Northumberland and Durham.

 

Only on retirement did I return to my long lost interest in painting, taking an evening class in Watercolour Landscapes. I have since enjoyed experimenting and have joined several Art Groups as well as visiting Art Galleries whenever I could. With all these influences I have gradually become a looser more impressionist painter, and because I am colour blind in browns and greens I have always been drawn to both bright colours and monochrome painting.

 

I paint using photographs or sketches as a general guide, and then add my own impressions of the subject. Every time I pick up a paint brush I get a sense of excitement, not knowing quite what will happen – so I will carry on experimenting.  I love to meet other Artists and enthusiasts and will continue developing my own individual style under their guidance.

 

 

I hope you enjoy my work – and I certainly recommend the creative arts for both stimulation, inspiration and relaxation.
