Angie Spencer

Angie Spencer was born in Scarborough, North Yorkshire in 1959 and has lived and worked in the South West since 1984. She graduated with a degree in Fine Art from the University in Gloucestershire in 2004 and went on to help run the Gloucestershire Printmaking Co-operative until 2009 where she also taught etching.
Painting has always been a passion and her work has sold nationally and internationally. Her paintings reflect a fascination with the wild landscapes of Scotland, Wales, Gloucestershire and her native Yorkshire. She has a studio in Stroud.
Angie is also an accomplished classical violinist and is currently studying for her Performance Diploma with Matthew Denton.
In 2015 she collaborated with the celebrated Carducci Quartet, to produce a series of semi-abstract landscape in response to their 2015 recording of Shostakovich quartets, part of their Shostakovich 15 project. The paintings were shown at the Carducci Festival in Highnam, the Cheltenham Music Festival, and at Aldeburgh before they were exhibited in her solo show ‘2 Quartets and Other Stories’ at the Wotton Gallery in September 2015, and then in the Hadfield Fine Art Autumn show.
‘My paintings are largely concerned with finding a way to depict my emotional and physical response to landscape, memory, or music. I prefer the semi-abstract to the literal, and the language beyond words in music and colour to the spoken or written word.’
Angie  plays with the Stroud Symphony Orchestra, in a string quartet, and with pianist and composer Oogoo Maia.
