Angela Hewitt

Angela lives a rural existence on the Isle of Wight and loves to paint farm animals, capturing their quirky natures in watercolour. She became a professional artist by accident nine years ago. She was chef proprietor of an Isle of Wight restaurant and was urged by old customers to write a book of her original recipes. Being short of funds to self publish the book, she decided to have a go at the illustrations and these quickly took over. Now Angela is a full time artist. When painting farm animals – she has in the past kept sheep, ducks and geese – she tries to capture the character of the creatures without them looking cartoon-y. She uses the wet-in-wet technique, enjoying the freshness of the white paper to place her colours with bold loose expression. She has sold many thousands of watercolours to people in this country and abroad. She now also designs greeting cards and creates designs for textiles and ceramics.
