Artists > Angela Shields

My art reflects my love of pattern and color. I experiment with watercolor, acrylic, mixed media and collage. I have always loved drawing the human figure - especially women,and that image often appears in my paintings. I usually use exaggeration to keep my designs playful which allows me to push my boundaries as an artist. The fun begins as I lose myself in my painting.
