My happy place is outside, woven between the trees with moss-covered stones beneath my feet.
Angela is an illustrator, surface designer and author who works on designs for clients like Chronicle Books, Target, Macy's, Smithsonian Store, Pier 1 Imports and Kohl's. She designs her own collections of dinnerware, stationery, textiles and other home decor product lines.
When not illustrating, Angela enjoys spending time in her garden, hanging out with her kids and hiking nearby nature trails. She draws much of her inspiration from the great outdoors and delights in playing with new art mediums and styles.
Angela is an active member of her local art community where she serves as art council member, organizer and promoter of art events and juror. She has designed and taught art programs to communities in need and brought art projects into schools that lack funding for the arts.
Angela is a cat lady, but assures her family that they will never own more than two cats at a time.
In 2008, Angela and her husband sold their house and everything in it and traveled across Europe for a year with three young kids in tow.
Angela has naturally curly hair — but she straightens it.
Angela was a cartoonist for her college (University of Illinois) newspaper.

INTERVIEW WITH FEBRUARY 13 CREATIVE
Happy to be part of the "Art Brand Stories" series by February 13 Creative! Click on the button below to read the full interview with the lovely Betsy Cordes.
Angela has a real gift for sharing compelling stories about her art practice. She has a warm, approachable voice and always features beautifully styled photos of her work. Check out her Instagram and blog posts to see what I mean! A gifted illustrator and painter, capable of working in a number of different styles, she may end up cultivating at least a couple different standalone brands that can work harmoniously under the Angela Staehling name brand. I’m excited to see where she takes things and I know you’re going to enjoy this interview. —Betsy
INTERVIEW WITH STRATHMORE PAPER
Here is an interview with Strathmore Paper on my 365 Skethcbook Series. I love working with the Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media Journals. They have been such great quality to use. I usually buy my journals and other art supplies through Dick Blick. They have lots to choose from!
I am thrilled to be creating this new line of imagery with the Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media Art Journals. This collection of journal entries captures a different painting every day. As part of a larger 365 Project, I decided to categorize each month to reflect a different theme based on nature.
