Introduction 
My art work is confronts human condition's including The physical Landscape of the body, The subconscious Abstract expressionist concepts "dream state" as well as the Social Moral and behavioral conflicts in today’s Polarized human rights. Expressions of my work are executed through technique, medium metaphor and dialog with a multimedia approach I rarely limit’s myself to one medium.So I can assign specific materials to fit my conceptual political and moral subject matters. Mediums, wood, clay, bronze, watercolor, ink-prints and abstracted photography. I use multiple platforms to show case my ideas including, Sculpture, Paintings, Installations, Video and Performance.  Working in 
 
Artist Statement
All organic beings must change adept and come to themselves through the process of humanity. I am living out my humanity.  It is my ultimate goal to be an Agent for change. Art can be rational, suggestive and call to mind things that are forgotten or hidden, it can alert us to what has been set aside, ignored and left to fend on its own. What is rooted in our minds or touching the surface of our conciseness, I’m interested in giving voice and form to these unique human experiences. Angela Broadbent

Neverland with halloween vibes and November Vibes The Frist series has more an emphasis on traditional halloween themes like ghost Skeltons, pumpkins, cats halloween moons,The Neverland shop has more images that are whimsical and landscaped meadows,woodland adventures,fairies and course ship imagery 
 Up-coming Themes 2020-2021
I'm currently exploreing the recesses of the mind dream subjects, The idenity of place association’s and theames in dream state well as body landscapes,I draw on my own personal life as well as the experiences of others who I am close too. I tap into moral beliefs and spirituality. my most recent works have included topics that relate to neurological disorders, Technology addiction, and pro-life. my daily art practice includes 3-5 hours in the studio a day except sundays. I research in medical journals, sketching from anatomy books, sculpt/paint and look at word play. when I have free time I like to work on Photography and photo manipulation through abstraction. and to read dream journals and poetry I regularly takes excursions and explore nature, and work on my physical body through exercise I engaging with other artist and colleages regulary on the phone in there spaces and have serious conversations. my daily observation and contacts with other professionals and intellectuals in a range of professional fields. Give me a unique insight and opportunity’s to work with artist and curators all over Utah I am a seasoned artist I enjoy mentoring and consulting other emerging artist, to help them break into the gallery realm I hold personal interviews give advice and know many many artist collabortions with artist give her a wealth of ideas and connections in the art world that are uncommon in Utah and make me a unique amoung my peers 
 
Sculpture
work is Influenced and rooted in artist that are still making amazing work into their old ages artist like, Antony Gormley, Anna Gillespie Gerhard Dametz and Jason Tasang. She also loves the color and sculpture play of Shinataro Ohata, Vigland Oslo, Willie Veriner, Nino Sarabutra, and Ronit Baranga, Textures are inspired by,Valley Nomidou, Ursla Von Rydingsvard. Her performance and fearlessness is influenced heavily by Ann Hamilton and Marina abromovic. Some of the best installation artist and performances artist of all time.  I work with clay metal and wood these are my chosen materials in regards to my sculptural works and I use traditional modeling and contemporary techniques in my sculptures and most of my sculptures are more organic in nature and fit vary nicely with my abstract work across all the mediums I use. 
 
Multimedia Photography
My style comes form looking at the world in a vary close up way examining textures of all kinds Associationsto objects, landscapes as well as natural things in our world.  I also draw from abstract expressionist back ground but I’m influenced by the contemporary expressions in design is use multimedia and computer to achieve the layering in my work this allows me to take something ordinary and turn into something completely original. 
 
 Watercolor Painting,
I primarily use automatism technique, in my watercolor and painting work. With specific erratic brush strokes and a splatter technique and layering. Using method has helped me achieved the meridian of textures and overlaid colors. That is difficult to get in watercolor. My abstracted approach to painting watercolor helps me generate new ideas and access the unconscious. I have been deeply influenced by the Abstract expressionism movement. Automatist technique is marked by Random decision and random mark making. And is a smaller movement within abstract expressionism. I’m influenced by Surrealism of the 1920-1930, which is rooted in Freudian theology and Andre Bretons surrealist manifesto and poetry. Freud was a bit crazy but a lot of interesting work came out of his circle of influence. Like Herman Rosharch who wasn’t an artist at all but a physiologist. He made the first inkblots.Rorschach’s was inspired by German doctor named Justin’s Kernerin1857 he published a book of poems which were inspired by an accidental inkblot. At turn of the century, psych experiments with inkblots were used briefly to study imagination and consciousness. His work did not improve the mentally ill. However it did spark an interest the expressionist movement and created a dialog about visual perception. It certainly influences how I generate ideas for my paintings. The abstract itself is a way to access unconscious thought. I feel it is key element to connecting with the viewer.  
 
Performance 
My performance’s come from trying to make sense of my personal experiences Much of my work is based on my education which has taken me almost 30 years to achieve in full. Much of this has to do with genetic disposition and learning disability’s and some due to personal circumstance’s 
I have performance’s that discuss the other side of education that one that has little understanding for people with different brains and little compassion for the persons with it. The freedom of expression that art has give me in times when there were no words to express my feelings. I believe that in the act of performance itself changes us, test our endurance, our patience and our willingness to keep going in the face of seeming impossible odds. I am influenced by M Abromivich especially by her early and more recent work delve into all the subjects that I care about especially the value of artist in the world with her “The artist is present “ my objective is to connect others to experiences outside of the passive viewer which we are so often used to because of the advances in technology and entertainment we often take a passive role in topics Are a real serious in our world in all my performances There is an expectation in audience participation this direct invites them to be active participants in uncomfortable sistuatuations  situations which are too often commercialized and treated with a unhealthy level of jest We cannot be passive in a world that still holds deep injustices we must gain a level of compassion understanding and a greater level of action My work deals with topics of  violence, politics, abortion, basic human rights to dignity, disability, and disease.
