Angela Au Hemphill is currently living in North Saanich, British Columbia, and is very much enjoying the inspiration of the natural beauty of southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. She was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Canada in 1973. Angie’s first formal training was at the age of twelve with watercolour Master Lo Ku Chune.  After Angela moved to Canada she completed high school in Edmonton and studied at the Alberta College of Art in Calgary, graduating in 1980.  Angela moved to Vancouver and worked as a Commercial Artist and painter for over 30 years.

Painting always has been Angela’s passion. Her latest paintings capture the vibrancy of the scene by distilling it into precisely placed blocks of solid and transparent colour.  Her work is strongly influenced by the impressionist styles she loves. 

Angie is a Senior Signature Member (SFCA) of the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA).  She has served on the FCA Board of Directors including as the Chair of the Federation Education Committee. She regularly juries FCA exhibitions.  Angela occasionally teaches for private art groups and for the FCA.
