Hi, I'm Angela Canada Hopkins.
I live in Loveland, Colorado, and I'm passionate about art, science, and the intersection of the two.
I am available to create and collaborate, so feel free to contact me.
More about me: A midwest girl with dreams of being an artist, Angela realized her purpose when she moved to Northern Colorado. She wholeheartedly became involved in the Loveland community while also working as an artist. Her community values and philosophy have guided her management style as Director of Operations at Artworks Loveland, a nonprofit studio workplace for visual artists. When she's not cuddling with her two cats on the couch, Angela spends most of her time balancing creative administration and working at the easel.
About the Art
Cancer is a difficult subject to tackle, but when it touched my life, I took inspiration from the challenge.
After my father died from cancer in June 2001, I decided the best way to overcome my new "enemy" was by embracing it through art. I initially painted the disease by deconstructing microscope slides of cancer cells and reinterpreted them. Creating the work has deepened my understanding of the disease and changed my outlook. Recently, my work has progressed to a more abstract style that references general characteristics of molecular patterns and shapes.
