Welcome to our Members Showcase! We are delighted to present Angela Swensen from USA

Angela's art works are done using Mixed Media,Charcoal and Oils   

To see more of Angela's work; please visit her Gallery;-        



The majority of my artwork is expressed with women as my subjects. In each and every painting, I have painted objects within expressing something personal that occurred in work, community or family.  I don’t believe in “voicing” out the situation, but painting about it. My close friends know that about me and find it humorous!  Art is therapy and I truly believe that if you somehow express it subliminally, it allows you to move on and remain assertive.

I worked mostly in the legal field and you have to be tough in that field, the every day task never allowed staff to make mistakes on the job,and if you did, you paid!  So on the weekends I was allowed to make all the mistakes I wanted to when it came to art. I draw freehand so, (I am never going to be an illustrator).i throw oil and turpentine down around my subjects to see what objects appear and go from there.

              I work mostly with charcoal, recycled newsprint and oils with 18 x 24 or 24x 36.  I have just recently began art journaling and now explore in acrylics and mixed media.

I have been a member of TAC since 2011 and I find this to be the most comfortable place to hang out.  Now that I have my own business, I will have more time to explore more members here and their amazing works that I see in the gallery. I would also like to get more involved in the ATC group here at TAC.

I hope to be able to dedicate any kind of help here if needed. Thank you for taking the time out to reach out and again, TAC is the place to be if you are an artist of any kind.
