Naive, Super: Lovely Paintings by Angela Smyth

0

Angela Smyth is a British artist who draws the cutest pictures and book illustrations.

“I am a self taught artist based in a small town in West Yorkshire, where I have a studio not far from the house. I’ve been painting professionally for over a decade, and in the time I’ve exhibited widely, both in the UK and abroad, and I am published by Aquarelle Publishing Ltd.

I love people watching and can sit for literally hours at a cafe table watching the world go by. My pictures are inspired by the things I see every day, and the interactions that take place. Even my animals are just an extension of the people I see on a daily basis, or they represent something more personal to me, but they are never just animals in a scene. The cityscapes I paint always have something hidden in them, it makes me happy knowing that there’s an element to my work that isn’t obvious and it’s a lot deeper than people think. My little secret.

I am dyslexic and over the years I’ve used text in my work more and more. Sometimes I spell words the right way, and sometimes I don’t, but I’ve stopped correcting the text now, and the mistakes stay in,” she writes.
