Angela Harmon is a 1999 transplant from the Bay Area.  She and her husband have transformed their property on historic Main Street in Douglas Flat, including her art studio with origins from an 1850’s cabin.  Angela’s art studio was the original home on the property.

Flowers and the bones of a garden is art to Angela.  Vibrant color plus structure detail portrays the language of Angela’s watercolor, collage and mixed media paintings. She draws upon her experience and design concepts of competitive flower show arranging and floral creations for weddings.  Her abundant flower gardens are an everchanging source of inspiration for creating painting designs of color, values and detail.

Although primarily self-taught and continually learning, Angela has been fortunate to study fundamental design and value techniques under local fine artist Judie Cain.  She also studied with fine artist Elizabeth St. Hilaire, a signature member of the National Collage Society, and an award-winning collage artist.  Ms. St. Hilaire teaches worldwide her collage design concepts and mono printing techniques for creating unique papers for collage paintings.  Angela is currently studying with watercolor artist Angela Fehr.

Angela has exhibited her paintings at the Ironstone Spring Obsession art show and the gallery shows of the Calaveras County Arts Council.  She is a member of the Arts Council and has also participated in their open studio tours. 

In the Fall of 2019, Angela began participating as a gallery artist at the Manzanita Arts Emporium in Angels Camp.  Her watercolor, collage and mixed media paintings are on display at the gallery.

Angela's heart and soul come through in her work. It is so clear that she is inspired by the beauty that she has cultivated in her own gardens as well as what nature so generously provides. Her work makes me smile and brings a sense of joy. Her talent shines through in many mediums and her perspective is refreshing. One only has to meet her in person to see how her lens of viewing the world comes through in her art.
