Angelique lives and works in the picturesque town of Maldon on the North Essex Estuary. Originally from London Angelique now brings the energy and vibrancy from her London scenes for a new twist on how to view and paint Essex Life and coastline. Angelique shows her work in London and at selected shows nationwide.

She moved away from traditional easel painting, to a more energetic technique that better reflects her personality. By laying the canvas on the floor, Angelique is able to move freely around all sides, working continuously, dripping, spilling and throwing paint on in layers. The image builds before your eyes into majestic landscapes, park scenes, city street views to architectural representations of landmark buildings and commissions of private residences.

Inspired by the constant changing seasons, which offer new ways to see and explore places, Angelique will constantly search and find a different way to see familiar places. Buildings seen through trees or from odd angles. Rooftops reflected in stormy skys, or winding paths through fallen leaves. Also seasonal country scenes we often wish we could capture as an image forever. By expressing her personality in this way Angelique finds freedom of expression and interpretation of the subject matter.

We asked Angelique some questions to find out more about her and her connection to Essex which we want to share with you.

What inspired you to become an artist?
I cannot remember a time when I have not been creative and it is a great source of happiness and identity to me. One of my first memories of being inspired by an another artist was on seeing Dynamism of A Dog on a Leash (1912) Giacomo Ballal. I was taken by the the composition and the real feeling of movement. Movement is very important to me now in my work.

Why is Essex special to you?
Where I live I can have the peace and quiet of a rural location, a beautiful town set on a hill and be right next the water, yet it’s still so easy to get to London. We also have an industrial side of the town with flour mills and boat yards giving a really varied landscape.

Where is your favourite place to go to eat out in the county?
The William B in Hatfield Peverel or Rubino’s in Heybridge.

Where should all visitors to the region go?
Beth Chatto’s - and definitely a visit to the Lock at Heybridge Basin. Walk along the Estuary wall to look back at Maldon Town and know it will remain unspoilt as it is a protected environment.

What’s the best Essex contact in your little black book?
I could not survive without Reeves the Ironmongery store on Maldon High Street.
