Angela Barrett (1955 − )
Of her own work the artist has said: "I've got two sorts of drawing. I draw passionately all over paper tablecloths, napkins and backs of envelopes. But drawings like that are difficult to convert into anything useful. Sketch books are different, important to me. So I can jot down ideas on the spur of the moment that probably wouldn't come back to me otherwise - dreams, and other things that pass fleetingly through my mind."
