Artist Biography

Growing up in Bangkok, Thailand as the daughter of a Swiss-Italian Chef and a Chinese mother, Angela has always been struck by cultural and natural diversity. Much of Angela’s childhood was spent exploring the natural wonders of Thailand - from the mountains to the beaches. This passion for nature has followed her throughout her life and drove her to settle in Montana to pursue her art and enjoy the many wonderful things that Bozeman has to offer. Angela is married with three children and a harlequin Great Dane and enjoys hiking and outdoor activities when not in the studio.

Artist Statement

“I have always been inspired by nature and wildlife as well as the cultural diversity that I have experienced in my life. I consider myself lucky to have been strongly influenced by Asian, European, American, and Indigenous cultures. The combination of these cultural influences, as well as my passion for nature, drives my artwork. Additionally my belief in a healthy lifestyle and the power of God’s creation - perfectly represented by the natural beauty of Montana - is a guiding hand in all of my work.”
