Angela Matteson was always the quiet, invisible girl in grade school, but drawing and painting gave her a voice. She loves to bring to life charming characters who connect emotionally to her audience. After earning her BFA at the Columbus College of Art & Design, a fascination for color and pattern led her to working fulltime as a greeting card and gift packaging designer. She went on to become the marketing and design director at a snack food company. Angela is inspired by nature and color, and has hoarded an obscene amount of paint chips from several hardware stores. She often paints on wood panels, and has shown her work in both local and national galleries.
