Angela Au Hemphill was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Canada in 1973. Her first formal training was at the age of twelve with watercolour Master Lo Ku Chune. After studying at the Alberta College of Art in Calgary for four years, she moved to Vancouver and worked as a commercial artist and illustrator for over fifteen years.
Painting has always been Angela’s passion. Her latest paintings capture the vibrancy of the scene by distilling it into precisely placed blocks of solid and transparent colour. Her work is strongly influenced by the impressionist styles she loves.
Angie is a member of the Board of Directors of the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Chair of the Education Committee. She believes artists must share their thoughts in order to nurture their own wisdom. She paints full time and teaches occasionally. Angela loves to paint with acrylic, oil and watercolour and she has won awards in all three media.
