The volcanic eruption of Mt Vesuvius on the 24th August in 79 A.D. left the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum buried in ash and lava for almost 2,000 years. During Angie’s work in Italy, she saw the excavations, sat amongst the ruins for days, and was able to capture first hand the impressions which remain today.

Combining her architectural, archaeological and painting training, (all of which she is passionate about) Angie has created an evocative interpretation of the beauty which is unique to Italy and to Pompeii itself.

These works on paper and mixed media capture Pompeii as it was, yet also create a feeling of present moment observations which are bathed in sunlight and colour. On viewing, we cannot help to feel that the Romans were people just like us.
