‘I love walking into the studio each morning - chalky sticks of soft pastel lined up in rows of grouped and gradated colours. The idea of holding raw pigment and applying it directly makes sense to me. For the most part, painting is a joyful process. From the first lines, to building up areas of colour into solid and then scratchy textured layers to define contours that describe the tensions and gestures between forms. Whether printing or painting - it all comes down to observation, an equivalent of a visual diary. I draw and paint what surrounds me and what I love. I seek to capture the impact of excitement and emotion that first made me stop and take note.’ Angela A'Court Angela A'Court is a British artist, originally from London who lives and works in New York. She studied at West Surrey College of Art, U.K. Goldsmiths' College, University of London and Parsons School of Art and Design, New York. Since graduating she worked as an interior designer for an architectural practice and then independently as a designer. Her work has been recorded in various magazines, Homes and Gardens, The Sunday Times, Traditional Interiors and Period Living. It has also been included in books such as 'Interiors by Design' and 'Modern Rustic'. “Throughout my years as a designer I always had a sketchbook to hand and have continued to paint. After fifteen years as a designer, I took the decision to return to painting full time, and two years after this I moved to New York where I now have my studio.” Angela was elected a member of the UK Pastel Society in 2009. She exhibits in the UK and USA
