About Angela Hawkey

Angela Hawkey has been inspired to paint for as long as she can remember. She was first introduced to oil painting by her Grandfather, who was an extremely talented landscape artist.

Growing up, art is what gave Angela confidence, made her feel relaxed and challenged her at the same time, this has kept her motivated and creating up until this day .

Artworks that uplifts, calms and make you happy are what we all need to be surrounded by. This influences Angela’s artwork and even when painting a dark painting, she also offers a dash of hope or light.

Having a strong heritage in the arts, Angela has explored many art mediums; but her two passions are oil palette knife painting and photography. Being a photographer and an artist allows her to really notice those little glimpses of beauty that are often missed. Angela loves to embellish on that. A tiny hint of the ocean through the scrub can turn into a paradise oasis through a cottage garden or gum trees.

Angela draws inspiration from personal memories, photos taken on her travels, and photos taken by other talented photographers that she admirers and make her smile. Sometimes a combination of all three, as well as a bit of imagination. Angela takes a messy, and free flowing approach to her art. Even when starting with a subject or idea in mind, she freely deviates from the plan. Angela loves the unexpected surprises and naturalness that come from a relaxed style of painting.

“My paintings use an abundance of paint – I can’t have too much paint on the canvas. Thick, buttery paint layered on with a palette knife gives it that extra dimension. People often like to touch my art, and I love that”

Colourful Australian Landscapes with a dash of pink and highly textured still life and floral garden paintings are a great love of Angela’s, but she is always experimenting with new things which helps keep her style fresh and evolving.
