Angela Drysdale, Scotland Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement "The call of Africa is powerful, a place of contrasts,often stark, then gentle and serene: forbidding terrain bounded by empty spaces so great only the horizon sees an end, where a deep tranquillity will instil wonder in the artist's mind." by Monty Brown
Having lived and travelled through many countries in Africa, Angela’s art opened a door to the continent, which took us on an amazing safari across desert, through jungle and over the open savannah where her passion for people, landscape and wildlife is captured in her work.
Angela then moved to Bagan in Myanmar (Burma) and discovered for herself that in the land of golden temples the ordinary but courageous citizens of Myanmar whom she met were willing to share their laughter and culture, despite the adversity they face in their daily lives.
Now back in Europe, Angela continues her support of Conservation by portraying a wealth of images and memories to canvas and paper.
