Angela Marr-Grogan is a Birrbay woman with connections to the Dhanggatti and Warrimay people on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales.
With a love of country, art and all things creative, Ang began painting professionally as a way to celebrate her Aboriginal culture.
Ang specialises in custom commissioned works of art, and creating meaningful imagery and designs for individuals, organisations, Reconciliation Action Plans and Aboriginal programs.
Her works of art are contemporary, bold and fresh, and symmetrical in style and feature intricate dot, line work, circles and concentric rings. Ang says that she always had a fascination with circles, and paints them for their timelessness, beauty and symbolism. ‘I believe that circles are not only aesthetically beautiful but represent a spiritual connectedness, and I am profoundly drawn to paint them in my works of art.’
As an Aboriginal woman and artist, Ang is passionate about celebrating and promoting her culture through art and language. She is also inspired and driven by the depth of Aboriginal culture and her place within it. Sharing stories and expressing her connection to her people and country through art is a spiritual and rewarding experience.
