Recently retired, Angela is now enjoying a renewed avocation in floral art designs. Drawing upon her experience and design concepts from competitive flower show arrangements and flower creations for weddings, Angela is creating floral arts in watercolor, collage and mixed media. Participating in oil painting workshops given by renowned artist Janette Jones, Angela was encouraged to pursue her passion for flowers in new creative artistic mediums. Her abundant floral gardens are a continual source of inspiration in creating designs of bright color and detail. She also creates dried floral wreaths, which she has done for over 15 years, utilizing flowers and ornamental herbs she grows in her garden.
