Angelina D'Arcy spent the first 22 years of her life in various parts of Australia. Born to immigrant parents - an Irish father and an Anglo-Indian mother, a mixed cultural heritage in a diverse cultural country has provided a rich source of inspiration and experiences expressed in her work today. From the vibrant colors of the Outback where she spent time as a child, to the clash of color of cultures and gender that is expressed as so often a by-product of diversity.
Angelina is currently a therapist and art therapist in the addiction and recovery. A graduate from USC with a Master's in Social Work in 2014, with a major in Mental Health, her bi-cultural background in addition to her experiences in the field and education as a social worker - lend to the socially aware pieces in my latest work.
Angelina's work is diverse - from socially aware to playful. Throughout her studies, painting has been her self-care. What is consistent, is a strong affinity for color and her willingness to experiment.
Her work is inspired by artists of today and the past to include - Chihuly, Gustav Klimt, Van Gogh and the world around her.
