We heard yesterday the sad news of the death of our former Chairman and friend Angela. She died on Thursday morning, 4th June. The news came through her good friend Bridget Bloom.
Angela was a long-standing member of the Guild, in which she played a very active part, until her most recent illness. Her artwork was strong, vibrant and cheerful, reflecting her wonderful personality. Some examples can be found on her Gallery page (click here).
Jackie says: I was very sad to hear the news about Angela. She was an inspiring Chairman and encouraging member of our group and her input helped to make our sessions so successful and productive.
From Sally L: I’ve just read the sad news of Angela’s death. She was so welcoming and encouraging to me when I first joined the guild. Her pictures summed her personality, warm, colourful, vibrant and unmistakable, with her own distinctive style. I will miss her.
From Lesley Bu: I’ve just looked at my mail to sadly see that Angela died yesterday. She was great fun and an inspiring Chairman, with a warm personality and a great sense of humour. I loved the exuberance of her art. She will be missed by all of us in the Guild.
From June: How very sorry to hear Angela Lee has passed away, not unexpected but sad all the same. She was such a warm and funny person, could always see the funny side of things. We have all missed her these last few years.
From Frances: It is so sad. She was the one who introduced me to EAG and apart from that she was a lovely friend.
From Josie: I am so sorry to hear the sad news about Angela. She was always a lively, inspirational and supportive artist, it was a pleasure to know her.
My deepest condolences to all her family and friends. Unfortunately I will be unable to be in Eye on Monday but my thoughts will be.
