About Angela Meijer: Angela is spunky and expressive and free! She graduated with her fine arts degree in 1997, and since then has been developing her personal expression of image making. This has combined graphic design, photography, painting, mixed media, collage, and, most recently, DoWho (her first illustration endeavor.) For the last five years, Angela has facilitated workshops and mentored teenagers on connecting with God through the arts. As a wife and a full-time mom to three young girls, Angela is passionate about equipping a generation. She is constantly learning new ways to encourage her girls, and others, in creative play and living life. Many nights, when the little ones sleep, Angela is found in her studio, exploring new ways to communicate through the visual arts.
Here's a fun little video of Carla,with her niece, talking about DoWho.
Here's the story of how Angela and Carla met.
Angela and Carla met in 2003 at Bethel Church in Redding, CA, during school of ministry. In 2004, after school, Carla became Preschool Pastor and served Angela’s oldest daughter, Emma, who was a baby.
Angela helped Carla paint a castle mural on the nursery wall, and the two became fast friends. Since then these women have grown into supportive, creative, special sisters who truly enjoy and encourage one another. Angela’s creative eye and artistic talent brought Carla’s stories to life and the two had a wonderful time collaging the illustrations together. Carla has many more stories in rhyme, and the two plan on many more visits to illustrate them.
Carla currently resides in Southern California, and Angela is in Iowa.
I love to explore, and when I looked up and saw a door standing open in Heaven, I just had to go through it. What I discovered on the other side was a world full of light and color and music and joy. After my first trip, where I found out that all of Heaven is celebrating me, just because I’m me, (and I got a cool fire crown) I couldn’t wait to go back. When I did, the door led to a different place. And each time I go, it is a new adventure! (But I can go back to the previous places any time I want.)
I am never alone. Even when it’s dark or I don’t see anyone, I can feel the presence of peace. But usually I meet colorful characters full of mystery and wisdom who surprise me with insight and revelation.
Every time I go through the door I end up learning something new about myself and feeling even more loved and liked than I did before. Often my journeys help me gain a Heavenly perspective on some problem or confusion I’m having, or help me remember who I truly am. They are always an adventure, and I’m always glad I went!
Asked an angel nearby in a bright purple wig. "We just wanted to party for a saint that we dig!" - CELEBRATING ME (Book 1)
The angel explained that the notes I could see Were from my DNA in my blood - that's the key That tells all my cells how to make up my "be." Then I said to the angel "So, you were singing me?" - SINGING ME (Book 2)
When my concert was done, I looked down at my toe. The tongue was all gone; the rock looked like a stone. I said to the angel "There's something I must know. Did that rock have a tongue, or am I going wacko?" - RECORDING ME (Book 3)
