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!
