Featured Arkansas Artist: Angela Anderson

The Arkansas Studies Institute houses four art galleries, including a retail gallery, featuring the work of Arkansas artists and art related to the state. This post is part of a bi-weekly series featuring ASI gallery artists.

Angela Anderson

Angela Anderson is an artist from Russellville, Arkansas, USA. She grew up in Palm Springs, California and moved to Arkansas in 1991 after graduating college with an Honors Art Degree from Arizona Western College in Yuma.

Although grounded in the basics of art through her studies, Angela went on to develop her own self-taught style of painting with acrylics. She pursued decorative arts for several years before returning to fine arts in 2004 after a trip to France.

Angela participates in several regional art shows & competitions each year. She has work represented at galleries throughout Arkansas and Oklahoma. Her artwork is collected by businesses and patrons from several states including Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, New Hampshire, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, and California. Most recently, she was selected for inclusion in the 2009 Arkansas Artist Calendar published by the Governor's Mansion Association.

She and her husband, Mark, have three boys. Painting has given her the opportunity to work from home which she finds very rewarding. She is also active in the women's and fine arts ministries at their church, Fellowship of Christians.
