She may be small in stature. Yet her paintings are anything but. In fact give Ange Mullen-Bryan a space - no matter how big - and she will fill it with confident, bold, large strokes. Her oil paintings depicting Swedish woods, forests and landscapes, display something of the inner world of this outwardly shy, modest artist. She admits she is not confident or bold as the work she produces and tends to shy away from the limelight. Her oil canvases are self-assured, dynamic and by no means shrinking violets - more like giant sunflowers searching for the light. They are striking, deserving recognition.
