Angela Earley is a printmaker and artist who is forever fascinated with Brooklyn, New York where she was based for eighteen years. Her work is a response to the narratives, mysteries, rhythms and characters present in urban environments and beyond. Angela translates her infinite city memories into emotionally charged imagery that can be universally understood or personally interpreted.
Angela is also a swimmer and art teacher who reads about neuroscience and collects kaleidoscopes. Tap dancing and scuba diving are two skills that she would like to improve upon. Angela has explored the edges and corners of Brooklyn, has rode a rusty bike on many European cobblestone streets, and once lived on an island in Pacific Mexico where she was hired to draw the behavior of lizards. Angela makes grand attempts to understand her exploration of place, people and self through her art.
Angela is a member of Zea Mays Printmaking studio in Florence, Massachusetts. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and her work is in collections worldwide. She received her BFA in Printmaking from Syracuse University in 1997 and her MFA in Printmaking from Pratt Institute in 2005.
"My motivation is to share and cultivate wonder, preserve the under-recognized, celebrate the absurd, and continue to be enamored with all of the challenges and triumphs that define our lives." -Angela Earley
