Angela Parr resides in the beach side town of Ballina on the Far North Coast of New South Wales. Her education includes a Bachelor of Arts, Diploma in Education, Certificate in Graphic Design and Certificate in Veterinary Nursing. Her extensive background in a plethora of occupations and interests have combined to create a multi-faceted person, with a balanced perspective on life. Angela’s artwork reflects her life.
Passionate about animals and wildlife, both African and Australian Native animals feature strongly in Angela’s work, as do all things natural. She travels often to gather material for her art, and to do charity work in both Australia and Africa. In 2014 she traveled on a camel safari, along with her beloved Red Heeler Ruby, for three months through the outback, raising funds for Swags for Homeless people. She has also held Art Auctions to raise funds for orphanages around the world.
Angela works in pastels, acrylics, watercolours, inks, graphite and coloured pencils and she is always experimenting and refining her craft. She sells originals and prints, and will work to commission.
