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!
Fine Art Painter Angela Anderson lives in Russellville, Arkansas, USA. She grew up in Palm Springs, California and moved to Arkansas in 1991 after graduating college with an Honors Art Degree from Arizona Western College in Yuma, Arizona.
Angela does original acrylic paintings, murals, fabric & wallpaper design, and custom artwork. She also blogs and teaches art through private lessons and YouTube videos. When she is not hard at work creating art, she enjoys music and reading.
Angela's artwork is represented by galleries and collected by businesses and patrons from across the US. She was selected for inclusion in the 2009 Arkansas Artist Calendar published by the Governor's Mansion Association, and one of her paintings now hangs in the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute in Little Rock, AR.
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 Peace 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.
