Angela is a busy mother of four teenagers. Alongside her art business, she runs her own business as a Senior Manager and Independent Consultant with The Chefs Toolbox.
Having created all manner of art and craft throughout her life, she
now finds relaxation and enjoyment in the time she devotes each week to
Angela has a passion for pastel painting, she loves the vivid color, the softness and the textures created with pastel. Angela loves to show personality and expression through all her artwork. She also loves the free flowing lines and detail created when working with pen and ink and a hint of watercolour and the boldness of artworks using charcoal.
Angela has spent the past year building a studio gallery which forms a friendly working art space and gallery. During this time Angela has continued to make art using a range of media, but her main passion continues to be pastel. Artwork by Angela Gerrard can currently be viewed at Nonna’s Dream, Italian Restaurant, Beaufort and in her private Beaufort Gallery.
Angela began developing her pastel art over 12 years ago with the
help of her teacher; internationally acclaimed wildlife artist, Steve
Morvell whom she recently completed an art apprenticeship with.
Of Angela’s work Steve Morvell says:
“Passion and depth of spirit are needed by every true artist and Angela Gerrard has that in beautiful abundance. She is that rarest of rare among artists…one who delivers her vision from the soul and not from the head. By this means her art reaches deep into the hearts of others, resonating and enabling their opening to the beauty of our world” …..Steve Morvell
Angela is now passing on her love of art and working with pastel to students in weekly art classes held in her Beaufort Studio Gallery. Her works have been shown in a variety of exhibitions and have been recognised with a number of awards including Second Place for the ‘Best Pastel’ and the ‘Best Pyrenees Artist’ Award at Pyrenees Art Exhibition and Sale First Place for ‘Best Pastel’ at the 2017 Beaufort Art Show.
Angela will open her Gallery on Mondays and at other times By Appointment.
