About Angela Robey

The fourth generation in a family of artists, Angela Robey happily and successfully carries on the family tradition. Her maternal great grandfather, grandmother, and mother were talented oil painters who provided her with inspiration and training since early childhood.

In fact, she and her grandmother spent a number of years studying under the same art teacher, the late Dorothy Horne Decker. Ms. Decker was a local portrait artist and art teacher in Vienna, WV where Angela grew up. She was mainly known for her miniatures of U.S. presidents which are displayed at the Butler Institute of Art. Many of her works are hung in the highest halls of government.

Like many artistically inclined, but discouraged teens, Angela left art behind after high school, to pursue a more 'practical' career. After a short term in the USAF, she then worked for over 13 years in the transportation industry. It wasn't until 2004, that she returned to her first love, and in 2007 hesitantly entered her first art show. To her surprise, her painting, 'Cranberry River' won a prestigious award at the Parkersburg Art Center's annual competition in WV.

Angela said, 'One of the most difficult lessons I have learned is that life supports us if we allow it. I believe people are meant to follow their heart and be who they really are. When we take steps in the direction of our dreams, doors open that we never imagined Staying true to myself also means that I paint to please myself. That's the best advice I could give to any aspiring artist -- develop your skills but paint what you love in your own unique style.

You may notice that a few of her paintings are signed, Rayne Tsering. In 2007 this name was given to her by a Buddhist monk, and for a brief period she used the name as a pen name and artist profile.
