My name is Angella Ocheltree. I am a native of Cobb County, Georgia who started chasing the American Dream back in the 1980’s. I was born with loads of creativity, and for some reason also with that entrepreneurial spirit that drives you to throw yourself into your business ideas and work unreasonably long hours in hopes of making it big. I had several businesses with varying levels of success, and then got swallowed up by Corporate America for a few years. Art soon took back stage to business, but back in 1999, I felt a strong internal pull to return to my roots, resigned from my job and arrived back in Georgia from New York City on 9/11/1999.

After returning to Georgia and somewhere between jobs (just after the 9/11/2001 NYC terrorist attack – interesting timing), I was commissioned to create life-sized sculptures of fraternal twins (“A Day at the Beach”). Having not touched my art in almost 30 years, I was amazed at what came through my hands! “A Day at the Beach” is one of the limited edition compositions listed for sale, so be sure to check it out.

Since then I have continued sculpting as I receive commissions, and each sculpture is a new treat for me. Please feel free to contact me about creating new works as well as browsing and purchasing existing works. I would love to work with you to create the perfect composition of you, your children and/or your pets. 

Sculpture is an expensive art form, so I also mix it up with other work. I am now managing member of a landscaping LLC in Georgia, Angel Landscape Designs www.angellandscapedesigns.com.

I recently expanded my offering and did a large (4’ x 6’) mosaic for a local church. One never knows...Painting and drawing may be next! 

Schooling background: I studied art at Mercer University in Macon and the University of Georgia. I also traveled to Italy to study the great masters’ works and learn the lost wax bronze casting process. During my studies in Italy, I even sold several pieces to local collectors!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my bio. Enjoy my art!
