in loving memory

Angela's name

It is with immense sadness that we must share the news that Angela (Hook) Bailey passed away on April 5, after a short and courageous battle with cancer.

The world has lost a selfless soul, a joyful spirit, an inspiring mentor, a compassionate animal-lover, a loving mom, wife, daughter and friend… and of course, a brilliant and impactful artist.

If you have any of Angela’s pieces or any wire creations that she inspired you to bend, please share a photo with us on her Facebook page or send us an email, along with any stories you may have of meeting her, being impacted by her work or learning from her. We really appreciate the support of this amazing community she’s built in celebrating her and her contributions.

We will be taking our time as a family to determine the best plan for her remaining pieces.

Angela was just as passionate about encouraging others express their creativity, try this unique medium and hone their bending skills as she was about creating art, so please… 

Let the wire continue to inspire!
