Twisted Art was set up in 25th March 2017 in Maidenhead by local artist and entrepreneur, Angela Mitchell. It was an instant hit with locals and the interest has grown over the years with many regulars.
This was one of the art classes aimed both adults & total beginners in the area which was clearly much needed.
Angela has taken part in local events such as “Art on the Street” , fairs, small exhibitions including one at the Maidenhead Town Hall and has sold her pieces to clients in the US, Holland, Sweden, Norway to Malaysia.
How did it all start? She wanted to be a fashion designer after she left school but her dad said NO. She decided to study graphic design. This is before it was computerised. So she studied fine art, photography, typography and copywriting for two years. While waiting for a graphic design job, she took on a role in a hotel which led into PR and eventually journalism. Art took a step back and it was only a few years ago when she took up the paintbrush again and started to create beautiful and unique art. Angela also runs a Spiritual business in Maidenhead.
Angela paints intuitively, using meditation and spirituality as inspiration. Her art represents the universe, mystical arts and energy. She likes the freedom to create art in whatever genre – be it abstract, animals, portraits or landscape.
Angela taught art to children between the ages of 6 and 16 in Malaysia. She taught them pottery painting, paintings, sketching and organised a mural painting project for them.
“Art is about expression, fun and relaxation. It shouldn’t be about perfection and precision unless you are a professional painter. I love to help people release their inner child through painting because we all grew up loving creative projects but lose it as we grow older” – Angela, Artist & Teacher
Twisted Art is a small, Maidenhead business run by a very passionate and warm artist who wants to help people feel great as they get creative!
