From drawing to teaching.... murals and reaching.... collecting treasures of moments...
A journey into myself with each medium... forming a new window for insight...
Time ticking softly, with each art form... creating a new world to explore....
All becomes clear, as Art whispers, "Yes, life’s song."
Born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1951, Angie was brought up with the traditional all American values of the times. Family was the center of her life then, and is today, with art intertwined throughout the years as an inseparable part of the whole. Married since 1968 to her high school sweetheart with four children and eight grandchildren, Angie knows about commitment and perseverance. This has naturally led to the trademark of her work: attention to detail.
Words from the
I am also fascinated with layers and transitions. The rhythms and patterns of life are much the same as the processes of art. That is why it communicates so well and opens channels for self expression. I have always been a little on the shy side, somewhat introverted. Art offers the windows to peek inside the life and times of the artist.
For me art is more than an occupation or profession, it is a way of life. I can not turn it on and off at certain hours of the day. Even when I am not creating, there are processes of the creative spirit that are flowing and gathering the 'particles' that will eventually come together into a composition. These 'particles' might be experiences, thoughts, memories... etc. and is part and parcel of the artist's resources. You see, it is the regular everyday life that makes up the materials an artist uses to create from. It is authentic, biographical, and revealing if one knows how to see into the artistic window."
