‘The magical artist is – by definition – a denizen of many parallel worlds.‘
Angela Ferreira is a Cardiff based artist who since young age has traveled extensively and her love of the mystical shines through her work. Angela’s technique is very strong but her uniqueness is in the almost surreal elements with which she populates her canvases.
Angela is a Fine Art Honors graduate from the University of Wales Institute and has a postgraduate degree in Arts in Health from the Glamorgan University and worked as artist in residence at the Teenage Cancer Trust, at the University Heath Hospital of Wales for over 3 years.
Angela was born in Portugal, sharing the same birthday as Wassilly Kandinsky. The very famous and typical castle of her home town has a strong influence for her passion about fairytales which she grew up with a very good view from her bedroom window.
When Angela moved to Wales where she’s been living and painting since she has embarked on a deep and personal spiritual journey that has opened a door to the ethereal world of Reiki and crystal healing.
Her work has been exhibited in UK and Portugal and in 2008 became a book cover in her country of birth. Angela’s work was published several times in the National Geographic/ Hampton Brown School Books in USA as learning material.
Angela’s paintings seem to be telling a story, a fairytale… Her goal is to bring cultures together, transmit good inner feelings, positive energy and to take your eyes on a journey into a dream world.
Angela welcomes her Spirit guide and Angels to guide her through her work and meditates on a regular basis. The strength of the emotion is clear, whether it be seen as through dream, daydream or even pure imagination.
