Angela is a Greek Australian artist. Her inner feelings, passions and desires for freedom coming from her cultural upbringing are fundamental in her art work.

Four of her paintings from the 1821 series were used specifically for stamps by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia in honour of the commemoration of the 1821 Bicentennial Greek War of Independence.
