Profile

Angela Blakley, Mixed Media Artist

Mixed media artwork with rough, edgy overtones and evocative concepts.
I am a mixed media artist born and raised on the Pacific Coast. I currently work from my Portland, Oregon studio and travel seasonally to a satellite studio on Maui - collecting sights, sounds and inspiration from one coast to the other. My work has evolved from traditional oil on canvas with focus on the figure to a more conceptual, and interpretive approach to mixed media creation. Rough edges, plenty of texture, along with the contrast of feminine form and suggestive urban edge define my artistic aesthetic. As a student of art and design I hold a deep appreciation for classic design- as it is the canvas on which modern creations are painted. “I see great beauty in the worn and threadbare as well as the sparkle of silver and jewels…and lust the juxtaposition of the two”
