Angela Lawrence: artist in oil & watercolour
Angela has her studio at home in the Kirkcudbright, "Artists' Town", where she gathers much inspiration from the beautiful coastal and hill scenery nearby. Recently the mountain scenery of the Western Highlands has also been a focus of her semi abstract oil paintings. The light and the unspoiled qualities of nature in Scotland stimulate all of her work and ideas. Some themes in her more abstract work seem to recur, and she has found the links between Finnish and Scottish nature to be an interesting source of this. http://www.cliencestudio.co.uk
