ABOUT THE ARTIST
Angela Gerrard is a full-time artist, working in her home studio gallery in Beaufort, Victoria.
Angela has a passion for pastel painting, she loves the vivid colour, the softness and the textures created with the soft pastel medium.
Angela began developing her pastel art over 16 years ago with the help of her then teacher and now mentor; internationally acclaimed wildlife artist, Steve Morvell. 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 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. She loves to show personality and expression through all her artwork and draws on her life experiences for inspiration. Recently she developed a range of tangled artworks, allowing many intricate patterns and surprises to be found in this unique and quirky body of work.
Angela has established her studio gallery over the past four years creating a friendly working art space and gallery. During this time Angela has continued to make art using a range of media and to develop her skills even further as she currently completes a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Federation University Ballarat Arts Academy. Her main passion continues to be pastel and pen and ink.
Angela is now passing on her love of art and pastel painting to art 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 ‘Best Pyrenees Artist’ Award and Second Place for the ‘Best Pastel’ at Pyrenees Art Exhibition and Sale, First Place for ‘Best Pastel’ at the 2017 Beaufort Art Show.
