Angela Babby Glass Painting

Angela Babby is a self-taught Kiln-fired Vitreous Enamel on Glass Mosaic on Tile Board artist. An enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota Sioux Tribe, her work is influenced by her Lakota Ancestry and the mysterious nature of glass. Babby’s artworks are glass mosaic tiles.  She primarily uses images based on black and white figurative photographs of her ancestors.

Babby was initially drawn to glass as a medium in a sculpture class during college, fascinated with the origins and creation of glass. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting in 1990 from Montana State University, Billings, MT. As a painter, she worked primarily in watercolors and acrylics. Painters who inspired her style include American Indian artists Fritz Scholder, Oscar Howe, and T. C. Cannon, and art nouveau painters Gustav Klimt and Alphonse Mucha. She would later accept a position at the Bullseye Stained Glass factory in Portland, Oregon, where she immersed herself in the manufacture and use of art glass.

Babby's work was recently featured in the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture's exhibit Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass
