Biography for Angela Harding (1960)
Angela studied Fine Art at Leicester from 1979 to 1982 and later obtained an MA in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University. After leaving college she continued to develop her personal work as well as working in the arts.
In Angela's paintings, she places delicately painted birds, flowers and pottery on solid, carefully selected blocks of colour that have a rather soothing, even comforting effect on the viewer.
”The imagery I use comes from my interest in day-to-day surroundings and happenings. The work often has an allegorical aspect that has strong reference to British painting of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. The work of artists such as Eric Ravilious, David Jones and Winifred Nicholson are a constant inspiration as well as the views of the beautiful Rutland countryside from my studio.”
Angela has completed commissions for several large national and international clients including P&O, MCC Lords Cricket Tickets and Francis Lincoln Books.
