Angela Harding. Birds and Illustrations of the English Countryside

March 28, 2011

Angela Harding was born in 1960 in Stoke-on-Trent. “I studied Fine Art printmaking and painting

at Leicester Polytechnic and then an MA in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University.

The recurring inspiration for my work is the flora and fauna of the British countryside.

My studio looks out over the Rutland landscape; the view is of sheep fields and English farmland,

which are often represented in my work along with the theme of British birds.”

“The imagery I use comes from my interest in day-to-day surroundings and happenings.

The work often has an allegorical aspect that has strong reference to British painting

of the 30,s, 40’s and 50’s. The work of artists such as Eric Ravilious, David Jones and

Winifred Nicholson are a constant inspiration as well as the views of the beautiful

Rutland countryside from my studio.”

Some of Angelas’ other inspirations and styles can be found here.

If you happen to be in the North East, Angela is taking part in an exhibiton called ‘Flock’ taking place

at the Northern Print Studios between 17 March – 4 June 2011.
