DEBBIE ANGELL is a former graphic artist who has lived and worked in Spain, Germany, Hawaii and the Pacific Northwest. With a degree in Art History, she began exhibiting her work while living in Europe. Her paintings have been sold in designer showrooms and galleries and can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide.


Angell currently resides in Western Michigan where she lives on a lake and paints from her home studio.
I find surface deterioration – the way nature transforms elements through oxidation, peeling paint and corrosion – to be very appealing.  The essence of texture and color is transformed and revealed in a sensual abstract composition.  I like to build texture slowly, layer upon layer, until a rich surface begins to emerge.   Each layer of under paint seems to peek through leaving a glimpse of what once existed.  In my work, I often explore the richness of a fleeting moment in time; such as a fragmented silhouette of a tree, or a flickering shadow on a weathered surface, and the beauty of a repeated pattern.  Each fleeting moment acts as a poignant reminder of the joy in nature that surrounds us all, inviting our presence and quiet reflections.
