Tennessee native Angela Faye moved to the Nashville area three years ago after spending time on her sister’s farm in northern Missouri. Angela had grown up in a country atmosphere long before urban sprawl eventually reached her hometown.
In Missouri to care for her father, who had been diagnosed with cancer, she found herself once again in the company of farm and family, and was able to re-evaluate what life was all about.
While on the farm, she received a peaceful reprieve from a career in advertising, she had left in Memphis and was inspired to slow down and see the beauty all around her.
Angela began taking random photos of chickens, goats, cows, and other “farm and country” nostalgia using a simple point and shoot camera that her father had bought for her. When her father eventually succumbed to cancer, she headed to Nashville to begin again with new eyes.
After living the simple life she was ready for a change. She started going through her collection of photos and was inspired to do something with them.
She received encouragement from just about every person who saw them. Angela created prints out of her photos and framed them in old barn wood. Eventually she used many of her photos to create vintage metal signs on twenty-four gauge steel, creating a new medium that was more affordable.
Angela resides in Franklin, TN and is a member of the Arts Council of Williamson County, Tennessee Arts and Crafts Associations and Brentwood Camera Club. Her work has been on exhibit throughout the region and for sale in numerous high end galleries.
