Angela Swanson, Artist

I am an artist living in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. I mostly focus on mixed-media abstracts, though I love to indulge my creative curiosity and experiment with watercolors as well as encaustics.   I started making art later in life and discovered how well it served my well-being. I turn to art to feel. When I am creating, I feel more alive than at any other time. My art is a piece of my heart and soul, an outward expression of the entirety of my life captured at this moment on the canvas.  My intention with my art-making is to express the depth of feeling in my own life and to inspire others to feel something of depth as well. Art for me is one of my best ways to be my best self.
