Born in Stoke-onTrent in 1960. Studied Fine Art Printmaking & Painting at Leicester Polytechnic and has an MA in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent.
Working from her rural studio in Rutland, Angela Harding is a printmaker and painter using a variety of media, including dry point, linocut, woodcut, etching and mono printing.
“The recurring inspiration for my work is the flora and fauna of the British countryside. My studio overlooks English farmland and often forms the backdrop to my work. I aim to capture a mood and atmosphere rather than a direct representation.
My work has an allegorical aspect that has references to British painting of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, and the work of artists such as Eric Ravilious, David Jones and Winifred Nicholson.”
Angela Harding’s work has featured in a number of national magazines including Country Living who produced a 4-page article about her painting in May 2012. Gardens Illustrated magazine and BBC Country File magazine have regularly commissioned original prints as illustration, many of these prints are available from Twenty Twenty Gallery.
Angela exhibits throughout the UK and has an increasing number of collectors.
