Angie-Lynne is a self taught mixed media artist who was born in Zimbabwe, and at a young age moved to the UK and then to South Africa and now lives in the Algarve in Portugal. Each country has had a deep influence on her creative process, and she draws inspiration through her many worldly travels.
Although having a background in media, events and film, she began her creative career through mosaic art, and soon worked on commissions for hotels, brands, restaurants and family homes. She later went into floristry and owned an award winning event and floral design company in Cape Town.
From a young age she knew she wanted to do something creative, and has been in awe of her mothers endless talents. Growing up and watching her mother sew anything, draw anything and literally build anything (even houses) her mother Aletta, has been her biggest muse.
Her deep connection to flowers started whilst creating floral installations and unique bouquets for events and weddings. She loved the beauty of each blossom and would look in wonder at how every flower was a masterpiece. She would keep any broken or wilted blooms, and try to make them last as long as possible, and would experiment with drying and pressing flowers to continue their life journey. During the pandemic, and after months with no work in the floral industry, she longed to get creative again, and whilst walking with her kids began collecting a mixed array of dried leaves and flowers to make arrangements at home. She now can’t walk past a dried leaf without thinking how she can transform it into hair in one of her paintings.
