Angela Warren-Thoma's Profile

About

I came from a wonderfully creative background; fully blessed with a Native American heritage on my mother’s side. She (my mother) always had a little project for me to do; showing me at a very early age how to create clay with flour, teaching me to sew stuffed animals, and later keeping me surrounded with poetry, paints and books, all of which inspired me to be the imaginative and resourceful person that I am today.

My father was a huge inspiration as well, giving me the courage to build with my own hands and the spirit to endure when times are tough. He gave me the insight to follow my heart and the ingenuity to work hard.

I love the whole creative process and have never settled into one artistic medium. I avidly read and write poetry. I love the textures and scents that surround my art table and find mixed-media collage to be…

I love the whole creative process and have never settled into one artistic medium. I avidly read and write poetry. I love the textures and scents that surround my art table and find mixed-media collage to be profoundly satisfying. Early in my life I took up oil painting and journeyed through art classes into adulthood; now I enjoy acrylics and adding paints, fibers and textures to collage. I love the dimensional effect on the finished project.

I often have a quilt or wall hanging in progress and have a delightful stash of fat quarters which can brighten even the darkest day. I have discovered a love of turning fabric into baskets, bowls, tote bags, purses, wall hangings, aprons and more. It is here that my heart took a big leap and I began sketching and creating dozen of my own designs.

I hope to share a little bit of my creative spirit and my passion for vintage collectibles with you here.
