All About Archaeology and Art by Angela Micol
I started creating resin art in the winter of 2019 and my making intensified in spring of 2020 during the onset of the COVID19 pandemic. I found it to be so helpful to relieve stress and keep myself grounded. I didn't start out making archaeological art to begin with, but decided to take my love of satellite imagery and tell a story with resin. I love the sparkle, the fluidity, and all the wonderful colors of mica powder.
I have my BA in Architectural design from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and I've been creating digital art and photography since the 1990s.
My love of archaeology started at the age of 8 years old and I began to research ancient Egypt after having many strange experiences involving the pyramids. In the late 1990s I began searching for lost ruins from space using declassified satellite images. The search intensified while my mother was going through cancer treatments and I stumbled upon a potential lost ruin site in Egypt. Years later the story went viral about the Abu Sidhum site in 2012. Eventually, I am hoping the Egyptian government will show interest in the site and get to the truth.
Art has been an amazing healing adventure for me which has taken me back to my childhood and helped me to see the world in a new light.
I hope you enjoy my art and remember to find your happiness!
