Angelika started making things out of polymer clay when she was nine. She received an art scholarship in 2004 right out of high school and went on to earn a Bachelor in Fine Arts from SIUE. She has been featured in galleries, stores, craft shows, art shows, and random shops ever since. "I do my best to learn how to do every single type of art there is out there. Might be why some of my work really seems out of left field." She really enjoys everything from photography, welding, metalsmithing, painting, drawing, sculpture, to ceramics. Currently she works at a bank by day, and is studio assistant to Catherine Magel out of St Louis at night. She even teaches a couple times throughout the year at Kaskaskia College, as well as run her business selling in many shows in the St Louis area.
