  Background
Born in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, her interest in art developed at an early age. For her first studies attended a French academy in Mexico City then moved to California in her middle teens.
Angela's first career was with marine mammals, capturing and training dolphins and sea lions for aquariums in Italy, Germany and Mexico City where she was instrumental in bringing the first shows of this type to her native country. In each country she pursued her art studies. After more than ten years with marine mammals, she returned to California and began a career as an illustrator to be closer to the arts. Now Angela dedicates most of her time to the expression of her artistic dreams.
