Art Cards United: A Inspiring Local Story

Part of an ongoing series, we have been bringing you stories of local artist and entrepreneurs that inspire us with their stories. This month, we would like to introduce you to Angela Taylor.

Angela is a survivor of both epilepsy and brain surgery. As a teen life was hard, but what kept her going were the arts. There were good things, and bad things about the arts like with anything. The good outweighed the bad though, and gave her reasons to get up each day.

After waking up from surgery her left side was temporarily paralyzed. Surprising everyone including herself she did what rehearsals taught her to do. She was repetitive and due to this relearned to walk, talk, eat, etc. This experience taught her how much of a blessing life is.

 The artists that she worked with and met inspire her even today. Due to her health, she turned to visual arts in 2004. 

She had her first show "TurnOfMind" with artist Mary Atkins in Savannah, GA.

There she sold her first painting and was published in an article written by Lynnette Spratley. 

She also sold her first self-portrait in the “I Have Marks to Make show” held at the Telfair Museum in 2005. Angela was in the I Have Marks to Make show every year since that time.

Painting became very therapeutic for her. Painting and giving it away, helped her learn to let go. Helping others gives her so much satisfaction, that it helps her in return.

Over the years she has donated art to the United Way, Tybee Arts Association, Interfaith Hospitality Network, The American Legion Auxiliary, The Savannah Children’s Theatre, American Diabetes Association, Hospice, Young Survival Coalition and many more!

She became a contributing writer and editor for ACEO Magazine on July1st of 2007.

She had her first solo show held at the Jewish Educational Alliance in on Feb 4-29th of 2008.

Seeing how little this inspired others, she turned back to donating and created “Touch and See” (a feel for the arts) in 2010. She also owned ACEO Magazine by this time and decided to give others the opportunity to feel the reward found from giving as well.

Having been bothered by the feud between ATC artists and ACEO artists, Angela created Art Cards United in March of 2014. Giving each artist the opportunity to choose for themselves if they trade or sell and how much they sell for. While giving them the chance to donate and help others as she does.

ArtCardsUnited motivates Angela to get going each day and not dwell on negative things in her life. Seeing others motivated to create gives Angela a satisfaction that can’t be put into words. ArtCardsUnited is also a constant reminder not to give up, and that you can too. Due to that ArtCardsUnited is Angela's love, giving others the opportunity to create awareness and help as she does with AngelasArtArea™. 

Most of the artists in ArtCardsUnited are female. Angela is proud to stand up for the right women have to create art! 

     ArtCardsUnited is a place where artists from around the globe have the freedom to sell, trade, and set their own prices on their 2.5” X 3.5”art cards. ArtCardsUnited is sponsored by AngelasArtArea™ and due to that creates awareness of many different issues. ArtCardsUnited does have some male members, but mainly helps women in the arts. Due to the owner being female, disabled, and bi-sexual these are some of the things ArtCardsUnited stands up for.  

If you wish to have political conversations respectfully we ask you to find a political group that does so. ArtCardsUnited is mainly about art and wishes to bring joy to the world through art.

How To Maintain Locs

How To Maintain Locs

I like to use a method called palm twisting when I re-twist the locs. I start from the back of the nape clipping all the excess hair up to keep it out of the way. I start with one loc in the first layer of the nape. I put Kai-jo All Purpose Cream on the loc from the root and twist it a little to secure it. Then I place the loc between my palms "fingers facing opposite directions" and then I roll it until the loc is tight at the root. I grab my clips then clip them down to keep them from unraveling. You repeat these steps until the whole head is finished. Then sit the client under the dryer until product is absorbed and dried into the hair. After the hair is dried you can remove the clips. Go through and separate any locs that are twisted together. This should only take a maximum of 1.5 hours to complete. Check out our YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9mouegESJ0
