She is zealous about painting characters, props and environments in Photoshop painting, and has knowledge with Maya or 3Ds Max prop modelling. Her fine art training encompasses pencils, charcoal and oil painting. Angela strives to execute novel compositions and ideas, thus offers a fresh variety to the table.
