Angelica V. Newby is an Abstract illustrator and Emotive Surface Pattern™ Designer, currently residing in Sacramento, Ca. Born in East Orange New Jersey and raised on the east coast, Angelica has always aspired to a life as a visual artist. They started creating illustrations from a very young age and that desire to create art has never quit. They love bringing what they read in books, dreams, emotions or even have played in video games, to life on paper. Their pattern design art also started young too, they used ink pens to draw highly detailed and stunning designs. The love of art truly soared after this into deciding one thing:
To be a world-renowned artist! Their dream is showcasing their artwork in galleries and festivals, collaborate with other artists on expansive art projects and traveling to create art all over the world! So upon graduating from high school in 2007, Angelica took this fiery passion in heart and moved to Florida to study at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. They spent a couple years in the Game Art and Design program to boost their illustration and creative thinking skills. Ultimately, to attain the marketing and fine art skills they needed to propel their career, they graduated with a degree in Graphic design and worked many years as a freelance designer.
With the artwork I am creating now you will see new images moments, weeks or even years later. To all viewing this site, take the time to pour over a design or even just a glance will yield a new perspective to you. Drawing these designs are a form of art therapy. Many people who have viewed the art and had an emotional reaction and sometimes a mental and therapeutic experience.
They are the type of person that always finds a way to push the visual and physical boundaries of their artwork. Their ultimate goal is to have their first solo exhibit and showcase their artwork around the world. At the same time, build a brand with their pattern designs on fashionable garments, upholstery, and home décor.
"My wish is to take viewers on a journey of the heart and mind thru various applications of my designs."
