The gold, occasionally copper, used for decorative fine lines and marks are often the distinctive signs of a painting or collage of an Angela Diggle work. A collage using hydrangea heads or a catlooking out to watch a fantastic sunset from the safety of a window ledge may glisten with gold touches and the poppies which often feature in her paintings can be outlined in gold.

This year, my 20th in St Ives, I feel more artistically vital than ever. My paintings are abstractions and elements of reflected light, vibrant energy and raw emotion.

As ever, the one overriding and continuous element of all my work is my insatiable passion for painting. Instinctive and impulsive, there are no limitations or rules in my work.
