Angela's work has been widely recognized and she was one of 69 artists from across the state selected to receive an Independent Artist regional award from the Maryland State Arts Council for literary arts, acknowledging her latest work and popular stage play, Clay's Place: Inside My Blue Mind, which premiered at the Chesapeake Arts Center in 2021, and is scheduled to be performed in November of 2022.

Angela has spent over 23 years as an HR professional. She possesses a BS in Business with a concentration in Management, and a MS in Organization and Human Resources Development. Having a successful full time professional career, she found it difficult to squeeze in the time to dedicate to her craft and passion - the arts, without experiencing burnout. In 2020, at the height of the pandemic, Angela decided to leave her full-time career and dedicate herself to her life's pursuits, the arts being top of list because as she says, “It is where I am most comfortable and the most authentic.” She also continues to use her professional experience, skills and expertise as an independent consultant.
Angela says that she is dedicated to uplifting her community through the arts and giving back. While there is nothing new under the sun. She believes that what makes someone a true artist is that he or she is always finding new and different ways to express real life.
