My name is Angela, born in 1996 and I currently live in a small village near the big city of Zwolle. There is a lot of nature around my home in this village, I like to walk around here, camera and sketchbook in hand. Documenting my surroundings and soaking in all things nature: from trees to birds and from sounds to tectures…
I graduated as a Graphic Designer in 2016. I gained experience in various techniques, such as working with interactive and graphic design techniques, (stop motion) animation, and photography. I have also gained knowledge in various materials and techniques such as screen printing, and adobe programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Discovering new materials and techniques is something I love!
In June 2020 I graduated as a Teacher in Fine Art and Design at the ArtEZ art academy in Zwolle. I took theoretics courses like art history, philosophy and cultural history. Which I found to be fascinating courses because that is how I learned to study artists who are no longer among us, but also to learn more about contemporary artists. Besides the theoretic part of my education there were also inter-faculty projects and my own visual practice. While following this study I did an internship at a secondary school where I was teaching Visual Arts. I also did an internship in the Education department at the Groninger Museum, where I worked on multiple (interdisciplinary) projects. In addition to these internships, I also developed an educational product for Natuurmonumenten VisitorsCenter Dwingelderveld. Working on projects that combine art, education and nature is definitely something that suits me and in which I will develop further.
