The multi-talented Angela Boerio

Angela's birds
Angela's birds

We celebrated Christmas this year with friends, including Angela Boerio who gave me two small watercolours of some birds she had painted - a cardenello (goldfinch) and a ballerina gialla (yellow dancer). A self-taught artist, Angela has done a lovely job of these delicate paintings.

 

Angela's talents don't finish there. Trained as an opera singer quite some years ago, she now prefers to sing blues but will sing ballads, rock n' roll, Neapolitan love songs and the occasional bit of opera on request.  Angela sings professionally at weddings, parties, bars, restaurants and hotels.  After lunch on Christmas Day she had us all singing along with her - even that old favourite "Volare"!
