Angela is a costume designer and artist with a Certificate in Costume Studies from Dalhousie University, a BFA in Fine Arts from NSCAD University and an MFA in Design and Technical Theatre from the University of Calgary.
Angela has long been exploring and investigating various techniques for embellishing, creating, and manipulating textiles. Many of these experiments have been incorporated into costume creation and have given her an appreciation for utilizing textiles and surface design techniques in the creation of sculptural pieces.
In this residency Angela will be exploring a variety of approaches utilizing the juxtaposition of technology with traditional techniques. She will be looking at ways to manufacture and alter textiles from a wide variety of materials as well as manipulate those materials to create a series of sculptural pieces that are either worn or free standing.
