Angela Bettess – ARTIST

artist statement

Diversity is important to me and is reflected by my interests in drawing, printmaking, oil painting and mixed media. During my childhood, l developed a love of textiles and color which is now being translated into my main areas of focus which are oil painting and mixed media.

Mixed media enables me to include different textures and patterns using paper, silk threads and fabrics. My subject matter usually contains reference to the human presence or influence in everyday living and, often when l am developing a series; a sense of narrative develops concurrently. It is my vision as an artist to act as a complementary influence through my art work to remind the viewer of the power of the positive and to reflect on the importance of the “small” things in life.
