We're delighted to be showcasing the work of Northumberland-based landscape painter, Angela Allaway.

Angela has painted from a young age, spending extensive time painting in local woodland, communicating the feeling of connection we instinctively feel when spending time among trees and in nature. Angela studied painting and has completed a residency with the National Trust at the Ashridge Estate, a 2,500 acre woodland, making work that focused on the trees and how we connect with the spirit of a place.

Angela would like to thank Marty Smith, Jez Dyson, Sarah Ball, Maggie Martin, Lil White, Alasdair Coles, Alison Rogers and Dave Cox for being there on the journey.

“I came to Northumberland by accident whilst totally lost in 2017. The woodland has always been my shelter from many a storm and that didn’t change when I found myself here. Seeking sense and finding my feet again, Northumberland has been the most beautiful place to heal. Spirit of place represents that journey.”
