Angela and her husband Tim are both artists, although Tim is a little more sporadic with his art. Angela, our artist in residence, has been drawing and painting as long as she can remember, but purelyas a hobby, but now, starting the gallery she is finally doing something that she has wanted to do for a long time - concentrate on her art.
I was born in Cannes, France, before moving to England at a very early age to be brought up in Bedford, my 'home' town. Although I have always had an interest in art and have produced a large amountof work in mediums such as film, lino cuts, silk screen, felt, ceramic, acrylics, water colours, wood, metal and stained glass, I have only recently started exhibiting.
We show a wide range of work embracing ceramics, glass, jewellery, sculpture, printmaking, collage and photography, as well as painting in oils, watercolour, acrylics and other media. The aim was tocreate an artist-run gallery with an informal, visitor friendly environment. Eagle Bookshop has supported and sponsored Eagle Gallery from its beginning and continues to do so.

Being an artist is a scarything to declare; it's much easier being a plumber or engineer or doctor. Not in doing.but in telling. Because when you say "I'm a plumber", everyone knows what you do. Same with doctor, engineer or garbage man. Most know why you do it, probably how much you make and where they stand with you.
