Angela worked for ten years as a psychiatric nurse in St Albans, London and Cardiff, before training as a fine-artist. After completing her BA in 1990, she combined her mental health experience and creative skills to run art groups both in the Probation Service and in a Community Mental Health Team. This work provided confirmation of the benefits that the visual arts and writing can have for individuals. She also spent 5 years working for a Mind association, supporting men and women with mental health problems. The latter part of this time was spent working with women who were survivors of abuse. She has taught creative writing groups at Chapter since 2000. Other teaching at: Cardiff University; Mind in the Vale of Glamorgan; Occupational Therapy Dept, University Hospital of Wales. Angela completed the MA in The Teaching and Practice of Creative Writing at Cardiff University in 1999 and a Ph.D in Creative & Critical Writing at Cardiff University in February 2005.
