Angela Musil's love of art was awakened as a young girl by watching her grandfather, a well-known painter and stage designer in Hamburg, Germany.
After getting her Baccalaureate in 1961 Angela moved to Munich, where she worked at Siemens as an electrical engineering assistant until she got married.
Once she had raised her three children, Angela remembered her love of painting and in 1987 joined the art group of Siemens. There she learned painting in watercolour by watching her fellow members and demos by professional artists. Later Angela also painted in acrylics.
Among Angela’s favourite motifs are city scenes – in the years 2008-2015 she painted in many German cities. Angela paints in a loose style always keeping in mind what Alvaro Castagnet said: that a painting should not attempt to be a perfect rendering of a scene but seek to be a perfection of imperfections.
“A painting should seek to be a
perfection of imperfections”
Angela had the opportunity to join a number of painting trips – to Austria, Italy (especially Tuscany) and to South Tirol. In 2014 Angela painted with Iain Stewart in Scotland, and in 2015 and 2017 with Alvaro Castagnet in Vienna and Salzburg.
“The subtle shades of the
English landscape provide inspiration”
Angela has a second home in Headcorn, Kent and in 1999 joined the Weald of Kent Art Society. She is inspired by the subtle shades of the English landscape and enjoys the opportunity to exhibit in Tenterden. As well as exhibiting with these groups she has also held solo exhibitions in various venues.
