Angie Rooke

Angie lives in a small village situated on the edge of the Somerset Levels. With a view of Glastonbury Tor from her front door and rolling hills behind her, she spends her days among the trees and wildlife with her two dogs.

"Such is the beauty and mystery of this atmospheric landscape that I struggle to put my feelings for it into words and so I try to depict it with paint. I sit at home throughout the year watching the woods, hills and fields through my windows. The rolling by of the seasons, the coming and going of birds, the unfurling of new leaves, sunlight illuminating the trees against a steely sky. I walk out into these landscapes and gaze back at home. To tread these familiar paths, to try to learn my surroundings is an everyday joy."
