Artist

“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

Whether it is the performing arts, painting, or space design, Angela is an artist and flourishes most in creativity.  She has had exhibitions of her paintings in California, North and South Carolina, and Georgia since 2005 and Angela has also painted murals throughout the United States.  Her most popular show is “Holy Woman Icons,” which are available for purchase (scroll down to see them).  Angela also does commissioned icons and sells prints of her paintings. She is thrilled to announce that her fourth book, “Holy Women Icons,” is now Holy Women Icons Coveravailable for purchase. It includes nearly 50 color images of her folk feminist iconography paintings, along with accompanying articles about the women portrayed. And now greeting cards are also available of each icon! Prints are also available by clicking here. Angela also offers retreats, sermons, lectures, exhibitions, workshops, and conferences related to her Holy Women Icons project.

Like her research and dance, Angela’s art is most meaningful when it coincides with religion.  Most notably, Angela has led a congregation through a 2 year project of “imaging” the liturgical year and creating 20 life-size canvases to hang throughout the church year.  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.

Angela’s art is for sale and she also offers classes, workshops, and conferences that deal with the intersections of art and religion.  Original paintings range in price from $250-$1,000.  Prints are available as low as $20 and can by purchased by clicking here. To arrange for a conference, workshop, or purchase or commission artwork, contact her today!

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:

CHRISTMAS

Advent (4 canvases; 1 added each Sunday during Advent)

Pentecost

World Communion Sunday

Lent (5 canvases added each Sunday during Lent and 1 canvases added on Palm/Passion Sunday)
