Angela Hunter is a figurative artist, sculpting both human figure and animal studies. Since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 1999 she has been in demand for public commissions. She completed a large commission for the Turnbull Clan Association in 2009, making a monument to commemorate the event whereby the first 'Turnbull' William de Rule saved King Robert The Bruce from being gored by a wounded bull. In 2011 she was commissioned by East Lothian Council to make a series of animal sculptures for a wildlife trail round the new Lochend Campus of Dunbar Upper Primary School. Also in 2011 Angela won the commission from Riverside Inverclyde to create a sculpture which captured the heyday of Gourock as a holiday destination and embarkation point for the Clyde Steamers. For this she created the "Girl on a Suitcase" which depicts a young girl, full of anticipation in readiness to depart on an adventure down the Clyde, "Doon the Watter" sitting on the suitcase with bucket and spade in hand.
