Angela Swanson lives in the Pacific Northwest. She takes pride in transforming the external and internal stimuli into a universal elixir of artwork imbued with spiritual and aesthetic elements.
"I don't create art, the art creates me"
With inborn artistic impulses. Her journey to explore the world of artful expressions formally began in 2017. Since then she has experimented with almost all forms of paintings. As a self-taught artist, she allows her soul to breathe through her artwork, escaping from the physical paradigms of time and space.
Her medium of interest is mixed media art where she explores, cultivates, and fosters unique emotions and viewpoints. However, she has also experimented with working in watercolors as well as encaustics. Currently exploring the world of mannequin art, she meticulously crafts 3D visual imagery.
Her artwork is not limited to her internal synopsis; instead, it considers the holistic view of life. In her art pieces, the combinations of colors, strokes, and textures come to life, telling the stories of love, fear, surprise, joy, and sadness. Connecting to the viewers through the imaginary strings of experiences, sensations, and states of mind.
Her artwork is regularly exhibited at Mosaic Art Alliance and the Society of Washington Artists websites. She is the artist in rotation at Ford Gallery of Art in Portland, Oregon, and Phoenix Rising Art Gallery in Vancouver, Washington. Working as the webmaster for two online galleries she is using her creativity to design and create online art shows.
Continuing her journey as a thriving artist, Angela envisions making a mark with her artful impressions.
I am an artist living in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. I mostly focus on mixed-media abstracts, though I love to indulge my creative curiosity and experiment with watercolors as well as encaustics. I started making art later in life and discovered how well it served my well-being. I turn to art to feel. When I am creating, I feel more alive than at any other time. My art is a piece of my heart and soul, an outward expression of the entirety of my life captured at this moment on the canvas. My intention with my art-making is to express the depth of feeling in my own life and to inspire others to feel something of depth as well. Art for me is one of my best ways to be my best self.
