I'm Angela Wrahtz, artist and instructor.



Thank you for visiting! Marbled and mixed media watercolor art is what I create. My artworks are a result of continuous experimentation with color, texture, line and point of view. I like to twist things and invoke the viewer's imagination. I like to surprise and delight with the unexpected. My work hangs in private residences around America and the world (yes, in Europe and Australia, too). Perhaps we can find a piece of my artwork for you?

 

I've been Gallerist & Coordinator for the City of Tualatin's Public Library (The Living Room Gallery) art program for almost ten years which has been an exciting journey of arranging art shows (for other artists) that enliven the space and bring an art conversation to the community. This work has taught me much about how to choose the right art for a space, a skill I share with collectors who wish to buy art for their homes and businesses. 

A great passion of mine also is teaching beginning to advanced watercolor painting on a range of subject matter in classes which are fun and designed for the student to be successful as they build on their increasing knowledge of the medium. Whether a student is temperamentally/stylistically a realist or an impressionist, they learn and find themselves stretched artistically. Many of my students have become quite good artists. So proud of them! Join me.

I am delighted at the recognition my painting "Floral Laughter" received at the September 2019 KAA Watercolor Show.  I was was thrilled to learn that not only had judge Carol Hausser chosen my work to received the Best of Show Award, but in addition the people attending the exhibition voted for me to win the coveted People's Choice Award, meaning not only did the judge like my painting best of all, but so did the show-goers. It's overwhelming and wonderful to be recognized this way. Thank you everyone.
