About Angela

My creative practice includes storytelling across performance, installation, photography, drawing, and textile works. I am particularly interested in the future of arts in Aotearoa and how to create a more equitable and sustainable arts industry. I studied through Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design, graduating with an MFA in 2020.

My work has been exhibited in Auckland, Whangārei, Dunedin, Nelson, Whakatāne, Morrinsville, Waiheke and Wellington. Recently, my work has made finals or won art awards across Aotearoa, including The Wallace Awards 2020, Changing Threads 2021 and 2022, The Walker and Hall Waiheke Art Awards 2022, and the Molly Morpeth Canaday Award for Painting and Drawing in 2019 and 2023. I have had successful funding applications to Creative New Zealand, Manatu Taonga, Creative Communities and Lotteries Community grants scheme. I am on the committee of the Shutter Room Gallery Collective, serving as Gallery Curator and have delivered exhibition or performance projects in Auckland, Whangārei and Dunedin.
