About Angela Reading
Born Queen Charlotes Hospital London UK 1944.I am a fourth generation hairdresser and had always wanted to find time to paint and make art. So at age 58yrs went to study art and design.I find my inspiration to make work comes from everywhere and everything. Life is a wonderful journey and the creative proccess assists to solve problems that present themselves every day in a positive way. The blank page is always a challenge and once a mark has been made another will follow and so on and so on until I have satisfied myself that the art object is complete. I love to work with concept, colour words and texture, I use these methods to communicate with my audience. I enjoy the feedback gleaned from the viewer and it fascinates me how each individual will bring some new observation about the finished work.
