THE MUSEUM OF LIGHT: Artists as Alchemists: Just as an alchemist transforms led into gold, do you feel that being an artist relates to that of being an alchemist? Do you view the artist journey and your creative expression, as alchemy?
ANGIE STONE: I absolutely feel artist a alchemist because as one begins to navigate through life which is ever changing we've already brought about change to the universe . With that being said we've rubbed off on the universe in many different ways some gold, silver, platinum, and as they say diamond.
The Museum of Light: The Evidence of the Journey: Artists are often labeled as "stars.” Just as a star radiates light and the planets then reflect this light, do you see your work as an artist like that of a star? Is this "light" that stars radiate merely the evidence of this journey of becoming a star/learning to radiate light?
ANGIE STONE: Artist's are called stars in my opinion we've been placed in a somewhat untouchable place but the effects of our gift has made room to illuminate and radiate a light that leads a path for others to follow on a dark road its the stars that provide the lighted path.
The Museum of Light: The Courage to Create: When an artist is not "creating" it is often labeled a "creative block." How do you navigate this space, how do you find the creative spark in the dark, and does it require courage to create from this unknown space? Describe this process.
ANGIE STONE: When the creative energy is zapped sometimes it's hard to bounce back in the way that you started when it's virgin energy, but after a few lessons in life after the roar of the crowd dies down you have to lean on others and in my case I was totally zapped, but God recharged my battery by sending me a help, angels, that I was not done.
