She works in many different mediums including painting, sculpture, installation, video and other digital media. Her works have been exhibited internationally and she has taught at several universities and colleges in the United States.
In this interview, Angela talks about her installations "Earmagination" "Power" and "Comic Sounds of Violence" for soundpedro 2018 at the Angels Gate Cultural Center. The three installations envelop the audience with their sounds inside a gallery space of mostly bare walls except for a couple of video projections. The intent is for the audience to reimagine familiar sounds.
