Deeply passionate about family, self-knowledge and advocacy, Angela devotes her life to being true to her path.  This creative journey has taken her to Florence, Italy to train as a shoemaker, British Columbia, Canada to train as a woodworker, and led her to co-creating the Market Collective (Canada) in 2008 - 2018.

For this work, she was awarded the Calgary Top 40 Under 40 at the age of 29, was recipient of the Community Impact Award through the Calgary Chamber of Commerce and was co-finalist for the Canadian Women of Influence Micro Business Award in 2017. After a decade on the Market Collective project, she achieved a point of personal completion and moved forward to embark on her next chapter. 

Angela now lives with her beautiful family in Sweden, where she is completing her MFA in Design at the Högskolan för Design och Konsthantverk - The Academy of Design and Craft at the University of Gothenburg. She specializes in Child Culture and Design with a focus on advocacy for children and society.
