FAQ’s-

q. Do you really do roller derby?
a. Well, I used to. I blew out my right knee, so I retired. I coach jr. derby now.

q. Really? You’re so small and nice?
a. YES REALLY. Don’t make me hipcheck you to prove it.

q. Do you do custom work?
a. Yes. I’ve done glittery wedding photos, pet portraits, derby photos, favorite movie characters, ornaments, and magnets. High contrast images work best. It usually takes 4 weeks to complete a custom order from the date I receive your image.I also take on custom knitting projects on a case-by-case basis. Convo me if you’re interested.

q. What qualifies you to make glitter paintings?
a. I majored in Fine Art (capital F, capital A) at Carnegie Mellon University where my professors taught me everything I needed to know about appropriation. The glitter stuff I had to figure out on my own. It’s a constantly evolving process.

q. Where can I see your previous sparkle-y work?
a. You can check out all of my paintings at www.flickr.com/photos/angelamodz/

q. What about knitting?
a. I've been the Marketing Director at an online knitting supply company for awhile now. When I started I could barely crochet or manage the purl stitch. Now I'm writing my own knitting patterns.

q. Do you have a blog?
a. Why yes, two actually. http://glitzed.blogspot.com/
