"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things but their iner significance." Aristotle
Angela has been studying and creating art around the world for the last 30 years. While her primary inspiration comes from the rich culture and lush beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, Angela will also draw influence from her travels and studies through France, Italy, Mexico, and Tahiti.
Nine years ago, Angela and her husband Kim helped pioneer Hanapepe as the Kauai "art destination" small town. They purchased an old 1920's laundry, restored it, and transformed it into a fine art gallery.
When not busy traversing Kauai's gorgeous terrain in search of radiant vistas to paint plein air (on site), Angela can be found in her Hanapepe studio painting, or volunteering and serving on countless boards, restoration projects, and community events such as the annual "Orchid and Art Festival."
Her paintings have been in many solo exhibits, juried group exhibits, and are in private collections worldwide. They have been published in Spirit of Hula, by Leilani Petranek; "Hawaii Magazine," "Hana Hou," and "Essential Kauai."
In the last year, Angela decided to expand and acquired a sister gallery next door to showcase the work of other favorite Hawaiian artists.
