Angela R. Green creates artworks in a bold, textured style, often making alterations to her exact style to suit different subjects. The artist’s affinity for music is clear throughout her practice, even in paintings that depict other subjects.

Though many of the works on her portfolio website are figurative, Angela seems to bring an abstract sensibility to her painting style, often exaggerating certain features of a subject, or blending objects with backgrounds in bright panels of color. Recently the artist has been using watercolor and mixed media in her paintings to create translucent, splashes of color. Subjects including animals, jazz musicians and instruments, and still life objects are rendered in an iridescent rainbow of colors.

Angela is also a poet, having published a book of poems entitled Words of Life to a Dying Soul. The book is available for purchase through the artist’s website. Angela also spread her love for the arts to new generations by teaching and encouraging young people to explore their interests in dance, writing and visual arts.
