Painter & Photographer
Angela Meijer studied art in the Netherlands, and began working as a fine art photographer in 1997. Her photography work was exhibited under her maiden name - Trullinger, and was included in International photography exhibitions, publications and private and corporate collections. The direction of her work dramatically shifted in 2000, when she started exploring painting. In 2002, Angela moved to the United States and decided to focus all of her creative efforts into learning to paint. She had a solo exhibition of her paintings in her birth city, Vancouver, WA in 2005.
For the next few years, Angela began experimenting in other media. She created many collages, oil paintings, mixed media works, exhibited her work in a boutique/gallery in Valley Junction, Des Moines and at a Coop gallery in Des Moines. In 2012, Angela started painting with Artist Collective: Duende As Art. In 2018, Meijer started creating personal work again, making portraits that fuse the languages of photography and painting. Coming Soon.
Artist Collaborative: Duende As Art
Creating Original Abstract Paintings Together Since 2012.
Since 2012, Angela has been painting with Adriaan Meijer and Katherine Rody. Their artist collaborative is called Duende As Art. The name "Duende" is from the Flamenco dance, and is used to describe those moments when the dancer, musicians and the spirit become one. The three artists bring their paintbrushes together to create collective abstract paintings envisioning heaven on earth - painting the dance.
