Angela Pyatt, also trading as Angie Pyatt, has worked as an artist since 1969. Having previously shown her work jointly with other local artists, she held her first solo exhibition in Market Drayton, at the former Shoplatch Gallery and coffee house. Many of her scraperboards of wildlife were printed on to slate and sold throughout this country and abroad, together with other magazine illustrations. Since that time she has exhibited regularly and today sells much of her work through commission. She works in a diversity of mediums, from water colour and gouache, pen and ink and scraperboard, to acrylics of social history and bold abstracts with gold leaf, at her studio in Swynnerton, in Staffordshire, as featured in Art of England magazine.
Specializing in paintings of British wildlife and landscape, she takes inspiration from the wildlife in the Staffordshire and Shropshire countryside around her home and studio/gallery and from her own photography, in particular of birds. She
ran a wildlife rescue centre for many years, so had the subjects for her detailed and intricate work living on the premises. Having cared for everything from badgers to birds of prey and weasels to hedgehogs, she is luckier that many wildlife artists, having an intimate and hands on knowledge of the wildlife that she paints. She also writes on wildlife, the countryside and country life in general and gives talks on wildlife rescue to both schools and adult groups.
Angela spends a great deal of her time in Norfolk, in particular in the bird Mecca that is Cley; where she is often to be found down on the Norfolk Wildlife Trust reserve or at Titchwell where Spring Watch is based.
Angie also exhibits at many fairs during the year countrywide with her dollhouse miniature work. Including her mini Japanned furniture.
