December: Angela Hopkins Maniece​

Artist's Statement: "After retiring from the military and a life governed by rules and regulations, I began to discover another side of myself. An Easter painting project with my children evolved into a passion for painting with acrylic paints on terra cotta flower pots. A challenge from a fellow artist led to my expanding my horizons and painting on canvas. I quickly realized I have an intense love of faces and a need to create portraits. While attending the University of Mary Washington, exposure to ceramic arts sparked a desire in me to create portraits out of clay. Always amazed by new forms of art, I continue to experiment and incorporate them into my pieces. I am not sure where my art is going but I am excited to continue to on this journey."
