Angela Alderete is an artistic dynamo whose mind never stops, as she constantly thinks of new ways to express herself and her ideas through art. Having lived abroad, Alderete brings a worldly air to her work, and an unending supply of energy. Most often, she has many projects going at once: a figurative sculpture, a painting, a book of poetry, and a movie that she directs and stars in. While clearly influenced by popular culture and aspirations, Alderete has strong ideas of the world that she wants to create and be a part of, a world the viewer gets a glimpse of through her work. Alderete is a member of Spindleworks, a nonprofit organization for artists with disabilities.
