Angela Simeone is an abstract painter and mixed-media artist working for the past 10 years in Nashville. Her main focus is her three boys, her loving husband and a Bernese Mountain dog, while she balances her art life as well as a business partnership.
As a self-taught painter, her education began with courses at local art schools and colleges and an integral apprenticeship which cultivated a solid, visual foundation. Spending three years in-studio with local painter David Guidera developed her understanding of color-theory, taught her critical art evaluation as well as added a graffiti element to her style. Her education is continual with future apprenticeships and over-seas exploration on the horizon.
Angela had a traveled upbringing living in multiple cultures. Born in Centerville, Ohio, her Air Force family moved to England and Hawaii before her high school graduation. Following a business degree from Athens, GA she moved to Nashville then San Francisco. The creative factor is high in her bloodline with generations of makers as well as fine artists.
A Graphic & Organic Combination
Angela’s art evolution from frenetic to simple and back is part of her art story. She combines the organic with street while maintaining sophistication and achieving a bold graphic style. Utilizing ink, acrylic, oil, charcoal and lacquer to manipulate form and space, she maintains a unique eye for color creating blur and subtle shifts within a work. A multitude of layers consist of hard, soft and create movement within patterned designs. Her work has been placed by world renowned Interior Designers as well as on Minted.com, national television and print, corporate and private collections, regional shows, online editorial and at AngelaSimeone.com.
