About Angela Oster

Angela Oster creates a world of criminally cute, odd and wonderful beings. She draws one-of-a-kind original works of art that she shares at local art fairs and galleries; on instagram and her facebook page.

After a life-changing Creative Workforce Fellowship from Cuyahoga County Arts & Culture in 2009, she found the confidence to do what she truly loved - draw cartoons.

Angela's work explores the tearful yearnings and joys of childhood, and she also enjoys drawing odd and spooky characters. She lives in Rocky River, Ohio with her husband, also an artist, and her daughter.

Feel free to contact Angela for commissions, or just to say "hi".

Here's more about Angela:

 "Her playful lines and tragicomic imagery explores the junctures between life’s joys and sorrows."

- Cincinnati City Beat, June 2012

 

“At one level, Angela's watercolor paintings might be described as "whimsical", even cartoon-like, but upon closer examination they capture our imagination and connect emotionally with each of us.  There is a wonderfully benign pathos in the subtle expressions of her characters; her drawings are "open" and accessible - ultimately, transcendent.”

- Still Point Gallery, Cleveland Ohio

    “whimsical” playfully quaint or fanciful, especially in an appealing and amusing way.
