About the Artist

Angie Shepherd is an accomplished, yet self taught artist, who has developed her own unique style and techniques to illustrate the beauty of the naked body.

Born in Gloucestershire, Angie has exhibited her work since the age of 14. Her style has developed from its early beginnings of simple naturalistic pencil drawings to the abstract and landscape. However, in recent years her work, completed in Acrylic on canvas, as well as ink on paper, has concentrated mainly on erotic themes.

Her paintings portray sensuality and passion and their intensity highlights the balance between fragility and strength, as well as submission and dominance. Each piece has elements of desire, longing and sexuality, combined with warmth and graceful allure. In each painting she strives to capture the beauty of the subject - to cage the angel.

Her use of texture and tonal contrast bring her paintings to life, whilst lighting and composition add drama and tension. Each piece is imbued with emotion and feeling. However, none of her work is prescriptive, each piece furnishing the viewer with the freedom to add their own interpretation and narrative.

Artworks include traditional nude poses but the gallery is peppered with pieces illustrating fetish, submission and BDSM.

Angie is very proud to be a member of The Guild of Erotic Artists.
