1344 Martock Road, Sooke, BC (East Sooke)
On any given day, the home and working studio of Angela Menzies is bursting with joy. Two home schooled children are chasing a big, cape wearing brown dog through the living room, a pitbull is curled up on the sofa and a cat or two are belly up in the patch of catnip. In the middle of it all, Angela sits at an easel, painting and laughing. Hanging on every wall are large, colorful paintings, mostly of nude women. "I'm inspired by wild women and bad dogs", she explains. All her paintings, with titles like "Tragedy of the G-string" and "The God of Bullshit" have a playfulness, a sense of humor in them. A knowing customer once exclaimed "I hear ya sister !" "That's why I do this thing I do", smiles Angela. For more please check out my blog.
