Angela Willetts

I received my bachelors degree from the University of Cambridge (UK), and my MFA from the University of California, Davis. A Brit by birth, I have lived and worked in the San Francisco Bay Area for the last eighteen years. As a result, I have a very strange accent and am not quite sure where I belong. In 2016 I won graduate fellowships for both the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and the Headlands Center for the Arts, where I am now an affiliate artist.  I have attended residencies at New Roots Foundation, Antigua, Guatemala, the Vermont Studio Center, VT, and the Post Contemporary, NY. I will be a Djerassi resident in October of 2018. My videos and drawings record physical dialogues with places and objects, and generally reveal my weaknesses, failures and struggles as a human being, of which there are many, luckily.
