Angela Smith (Liverpool, 1972) is a British painter. Having initially studied English Literature and Politics and working in Investment Banking in London, she went on to study painting at Wimbledon School of Art. She has since been involved in solo and group shows in London and South East England and her work has been bought by collectors in the UK, Europe and the US.
"Painting and drawing are central to my art practice and allow me to explore the space between fact and fiction. I'm interested in the possibilities of narrative and invoking atmosphere and emotion. My paintings often depict children but are rarely about the subjects, rather the universal theme of childhood - a complex layering of emotion, experience and imaginings. Books, films and photography often inform my work but the process of painting is what I feel most at ease with. I see making art as a form of story telling and making sense of something deep inside, whilst hopefully creating something that others will find pleasure and meaning from."
Angela currently works and lives in South West London.
