Wire sculptures by Angela Hook.
Angela Hook graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, Alberta in 1998. There, she was exposed to many forms of art and types of media.
In 2002 she began exploring the possibilities of wire as an artistic medium. With relatively few resources available on the subject, she set out to explore and popularize this beautiful art form, as well as develop her own technical expertise in a craft that seemed to have been forgotten.
Growing up with horses made them a regular subject in Angela's art throughout the years, from doodles in sketchbooks to a life-size paper mache colt constructed of wrapping paper tubes and chicken wire. It was only natural that her first wire sculpture should be a horse.
Angela is available to teach workshops or do speaking engagements on wire art. Please contact her directly through the www.wireinspire.com Web site to discuss how you could use this medium as a tool to be more creative in your work or play.
Angela Hook discusses what inspired her to start working in this fascinating medium, where she finds sources of creative inspiration, and simple projects aspiring wire artists can make at home.
