“One who works with one’s hands is a laborer. One who works with one’s hands and one’s head is a craftsman. One who works with one’s hands, one’s head and one’s heart is an artist.” –St. Francis of Assisi

Like her research and dance, Angela’s art is most meaningful when it coincides with religion.

For selected photographs of Angela’s artwork, scroll to the bottom of this page.
Angela has served as an Artist in Residence for national organizations throughout the country, painting during worship services, or creating paintings for gallery spaces. She has also been commissioned to create works of art for numerous individuals.

Imaging the Liturgical Year
For two years, Angela led a congregation in “imaging” each season of the Liturgical year through workshops, writing, drawing, discussions, and painting. After a year of “imaging,” Angela created templates of 20 seasons/days based on the images created by the congregation. She guided them in creating 20 life-size canvases that hang during the appropriate church season. Below are a selection of some of the canvases:
