About the Artist
Angel Bruton has been painting for the last twenty five years and in that time has developed her own unique style.
A qualified architect and interior designer, her first love has always been painting, particularly in the medium of watercolour. A purist by inclination, Angel loves the fluidity and unexpectedness of the water and paint coming together on the paper. She delights in using colour creatively and capturing dramatic effects of light and shade. The spontaneity of the moment is all important and she endeavours to keep that freshness alive throughout the painting. Angel has studied with international artists such as Michael Chaplain, Trevor Waugh, Karlyn Holman, Alvaro Castagnet, Steve Hall, Judi Whitton and Margaret Evans. More locally she has worked with Brian Byrnes, Susan Webb, Nina Patterson, Olivia Hayes and Vincent Lamb. These influences have stimulated her to develop her particular style toward reaching her full potential. Angel’s invitation to paint for the Channel 4 programme ‘Watercolour Challenge’ was further testament to her growing expertise in her chosen field. She is an elected member of the Dublin Painting and Sketching Club, The Watercolour Society of Ireland and the Dublin Art Society.
