Angela earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and her Master of Arts in Art Therapy at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Much of her artwork is influenced by her medical condition, diabetes, and by her work in the health care industry as a care partner for people with Alzheier’s, dementia, cancer, and other illnesses. She co-founded Eidolon Art Studio in 2005, an artist collective in Rogers Park that provided workspace for six local artists, as well as a community darkroom, potter’s wheel, kiln firing services, and a variety of classes taught by resident artists. In 2009, Angela joined the board of directors of Mookie Jam Foundation, a Chicago-based non-profit that offers assistance to artists with multiple sclerosis. She organized with Pilsen Open Studios from 2008 until 2012. Angela’s artwork has been exhibited in Boston, Chicago and New York.
