Exalting the human spirit through expressive faces and natural body movement has become the recognized trademark of Angela Mia De la Vega’s figurative bronze sculpture. Her work’s greatest inspiration is the ever-changing individuality of her children.
Angela graduated Summa Cum Laude from Clarion University of Pennsylvania and completed post-graduate studies at the University of Madrid, Spain. She is an elected member of the National Sculpture Society, a Master Signature member of American Women Artists, and was named a Living Master by the internationally prestigious ARC (Art Renewal Center). Major awards include Best in Show and Best 3D Work by AWA and The Purchase Award by the ARC Museum. Her sculptures are installed in numerous universities, hospitals, public parks and city plazas throughout the USA and privately collected throughout North America, Europe, Australia, Dubai, India, China, and Japan.
Angela cofounded and is president of FLITE to Freedom (Friends Lifting Individuals To Empowerment), a non-for-profit organization which seeks to inspire and channel the hopes and dreams of others by harnessing the power of artistic expression. FLITE members and supporters believe that creative activity empowers enslaved, the unfairly encumbered, and the marginalized: www.flitetofreedom.com.
