Item Description

"American Girl, Dear Life" -  Having a series of circus performers and tents on my mind, while in line at a shop I browsed a book, and saw an image of a fashion model dropping from a parachute, and voila!  the parachute echoed the buoy form, and my circus girl would look great on the handle.  I whittled away a bit of a form and then painted her image. I am inspired by The Flying Wallendas Family Circus, and old fashioned circus costumes and tents. Stories are the backdrop for my process, books on CDs accompany me in my studio. The materials are Mixed Media.  


Native of Port Clyde, Maine, Angela lived abroad, on the West Coast and New York City for 25 years before returning to Maine. She has a BFA from UNH Durham, and has shown her paintings in all the places she has lived. For a more complete biography and to see paintings from the last four years, see Anderson teaches ongoing painting classes at the Thomaston Academy, mornings and afternoons.  Recently a solo exhibit of her work was on view at the Camden Public Library, and in Portsmouth, NH.
