Born and raised in Maine, Angelique has resided here for the majority of her life. Angelique is an empathic, intuitive, abstract artist who draws from her experiences as a mother, professional gardener, Reiki healer, and former yoga instructor. Discernment is at the forefront of the creative process for her. 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, which results in engaging acrylic/ mixed media works. 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 originates from within as a desire to process the world around me. It is a tangible interpretation of life and how I perceive it. As an intuitive, empathic artist and someone who is innately shy, art-making is a cathartic release of emotion and thought. There are many instances where words are lost upon me, but 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, use of shape, and several techniques to build texture in all of my work. Each time I begin a painting I approach it with a sense of exploration and curiosity, seeking places within each piece that will have the potential to speak volumes to the audience.
