Born and raised in Roanoke, Virginia, Angie Wiggins was in the seventh grade when she won first place in an art show. It was a watercolor still life of wine bottles. Her choice of media may have changed, but her passion to create has remained a constant.
Angie went on to receive a BFA in Fine Crafts from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia the very first year that it was awarded. Over the years she has taken dozens of workshops in all sorts of media. Handmade paper and polymer clay are the media central to her work.
Throughout her career, Angie has run her own gallery/studio in New Orleans, exhibited in regional galleries and art shows, made holiday ornaments for both the White House and the Virginia governor’s mansion, and has taught classes to students of all ages. Angie has been privileged to have her work published in various books and magazines.
Angie lives in Powhatan, Virginia with her husband, Donnie Caffery, where she enjoys gardening, chicken farming, cooking, great company, hiking out west, and exploring other parts of the world.
I was taught to embroider at the age of five.
I have been a detail freak ever since.
