Born and raised in Maine, Angelique has resided here for most of her life.

Inspired by the love of family, animals, and the natural world, she blends her innate knowledge of color, texture, and line with curiosity and a sense of exploration. She currently lives on a small farm in southern Maine with her husband and their four equines, two dogs, and a cat.

Artist’s Statement

My work as an artist is a tangible interpretation of life and how I perceive it. I am innately shy, and art-making is a cathartic release of emotion and thought for me. When I speak through my work, my expression comes naturally and easily.

I strive to create art that has a depth of visual interest, layering of color, variation in line, and several techniques to build texture. Each time I begin a painting, I approach it with a sense of exploration and curiosity.
