Angalee DeForest

A professional artist for over thirty years, Angalee DeForest studied fine art at the University of Texas in Austin, and independently with nationally known artists throughout the United States. She taught painting and figurative sculpture for four years at the Eastern Shore Art Association Academy in Fairhope, Alabama before moving to California in 1994. In the Bay Area and Northern California, she continued to study and teach, creating a large new body of work reflecting greater exploration of pastel, oil, and sculpture.

After moving to New York in 2000, she continued to find new inspirations in the vast beauty and cultural diversity of the Empire State, the Hudson River Valley, and New England. Now living in Rockport, Texas, she is creating a new portfolio of work reflecting the exciting colors and compositions of the South and Southwest.

Her work has received extensive awards and consistent acceptance in national juried exhibitions, and is included in numerous collections, among them the United States Marine Corps Security Guard Headquarters, Quantico, Virginia; and Lombardi, Loper & Conant, LLP, Oakland, California.

Angalee's work is currently represented by Felder Gallery in Port Aransas, TX, and Wind Way Gallery in Rockport, Texas. She regularly offers workshops in oil, pastel, and color theory.
