Angela Hawkey: Expressive Palette Knife Artistry

Art has been a fundamental aspect of Angela Hawkey‘s life, a passion sparked by her gifted Grandfather, a landscape artist who introduced her to the enchanting realm of oil painting. Affectionately known as Angie, she doesn’t strive for perfection in representation; instead, her aim is to infuse joy through the interplay of texture, color, and shape. Having framed Angela’s art for numerous years at Dawson’s Framing, we are delighted to offer you a glimpse into Angie’s world and showcase some of the works we’ve had the privilege to frame for her.

Angie’s distinctive style is characterized by the abundantly applied oil paint on her canvases. “I can’t have too much paint on the canvas. Thick, buttery paint layered on with a palette knife gives it that extra dimension. People often like to touch my art, and I love that,” she expresses with enthusiasm.

With a strong heritage in the arts, Angie has explored various mediums, but her two passions are oil palette knife painting and photography.
