Self-taught animal artist Angela Davidson has become well known for her artwork, which features, in the main, her subjects on a black background. Indeed, some of Angela's better known works like her run-away success The Black Angus, which featured an Aberdeen Angus bull, consisted of nothing more than the black subject on a black background.
This theme began back in 2006 with an original work titled Black on Black. This artwork, depicting a black Highland Bull, was first shown at The Royal Highland Show in that year, and became an immediate success.
Angela's giclee print range now numbers well in excess of one hundred and twenty, and features a diversity of animals. Her range includes various breeds of prize bulls and cattle, pigs, dogs, horses and champion sheep. She also recently ventured into the world of exotic animals; her first offering being the amazing tiger picture Burning Bright.
The company Duncan Taylor, a Scottish whisky company of some repute, also commissioned Angela Davidson to create the artwork which now features on the label of their Multiple Award Winning Black Bull whisky. The brand has now also found its way onto the racing cars of Ecurie Ecosse.
Angela regularly exhibits her work at venues such as The Royal Highland Show, Great Yorkshire Show, her local Turriff Show and Blair Atholl Horse Trials. Her work can also be seen in her own gallery and at The George Pirie Modern, Leith, Edinburgh.
