Angie Whitson, M.I.B.A., known simply as Angie, is a sculptress, painter and etcher. She is most noted for her limited-edition bronze sculpture and her limited-edition etchings using the soft ground technique with aquatint. There is a definite reflection of her fantasies in her work; the human force, the spirit of adventure and love. Angie extensively researches her subjects prior to creating a work. She presents her etchings in a very serious mood, particularly her nudes, but also has a lighter humorous side, bringing laughter and joy to the viewer.
Angie’s art career began in the basement of the Norton Simon Museum of Art in Pasadena, CA. She began under the instruction of Thomas Larsen, and continued her education at the Northridge University. It was there that she found that she was a natural at color composition, and became interested in sculpture. With this new serious outlook, she continued her studies at the Art League of Los Angeles under the instruction of Hal Reed.
Over a period of several years she has won eight gold medals, twelve first prizes and many 2nd and 3rd prizes. In her first international exhibit show won first place for her fine sculpture. Just recently installed in the “Walk of Fame” was a bronze bust of Ernie Kovacs, commissioned by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. A second casting is destined for permanent installation and display in his home city, Trenton, New Jersey.
Her prints and sculpture are collected throughout the world.
