About Me

Angela
Hawkey

Hi, I am Angie.

I was born in Manly Sydney and was raised on the sunny Gold Coast.

Art has always been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was first introducued to oil painting by my Grandfather, who was an extremely talented landscape artist. From the age of 7 he let me paint alongside him, even taking me on field trips to Nunimbah valley to paint onsite.The artistic genes don’t stop there, however. My Nana, mother and sister all paint and create too.

I have worked in numerous creative fields such as photography, photo editing, ceramics, and makeup artistry to name a few. I always feel most content with a paintbrush in my hand, even if it’s just to paint a fence. I love the feel of holding a paintbrush and the paint gliding over a surface. It takes me to a place of comfort and happiness.

I take a messy, unplanned and freeflowing approach to my art. Even when starting with a subject or idea in mind, I freely deviate from the plan. I love the unexpected surprises and naturalness that comes from a relaxed approach.

Beauty, shape, design and colour in nature are what inspires my work. I hope it brings you as much contentment and joy as it brings me.
