A Note from Angela
Hi! I am Angela Anderson and I create free acrylic painting videos on YouTube. I am all about empowering people to create art they can be proud of no matter what their age or experience level. I try to make the process of learning to paint fun and enjoyable. Painting is a skill that can be developed through practice and guidance and I am honored to be able to help you with your art journey!
Artist and video creator Angela Anderson grew up in Palm Springs, CA and now resides in the beautiful foothills of the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas.
She shares her love for painting through weekly livestream videos on her popular YouTube channel. Her lovely, nature-inspired designs and acrylic paintings are a favorite with fans and collected by patrons worldwide, including the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute.
Besides art, Angela's major interests include reading, gardening, music concerts, puzzles, and spending time with her family, friends and dog Fitzpickle. Her husband and high school sweetheart, Mark, is the co-host during Angela's livestream shows and partner in their business Thankful Art. Together they have 3 sons, a daughter-in-law, and one grandson - who calls them Gigi and Grampy.
I knew early in life that I wanted to be an artist. Some of my first and fondest memories involve crayons and paint. The subjects of my artwork have changed over the years, but I still get a thrill from the magic of creating something beautiful out of a blank page or canvas. I find myself drawn to bright colors and interesting lines, shapes and patterns in everyday life. I like a strong focal point, often with one subject dominating the space. My inspiration comes from nature, but I also enjoy the juxtaposition of adding a touch of something man-made (like book pages or a wallpaper pattern in the background). I work with acrylics, adding many layers of paint to get a luminous effect. I want my paintings to be more than just pretty artwork. I want them to make the viewer feel something peaceful in a crazy world. Joy of discovery. Warmth and wonder. The love of our creator. I hope these things come across in my artwork. It is an honor and a blessing to share my heart through my paintings.
