Angela has been a makeup artist for over thirty years, working in television, music videos, print, and photography. Writing, art, and photography have been her outlet for self-expression for as long as she can remember. In 1993 she married her soul mate, veteran bassist James LoMenzo. Spending her entire life in a community of uniquely talented artists has kept her firmly rooted in a creative lifestyle. She lives in her native Los Angeles with James and rescue pup Lita. The two have a daughter, Zoe Rose, who is a graphic artist and illustrator. When Angela is not writing, she is the creative director and makeup artist at Monster House Productions, the video/music production company she started with James in 2012. She recently became certified as a Chopra Meditation Instructor to help people learn the healing benefits of meditation both physically and mentally.
by James LoMenzo
James LoMenzo was born in Brooklyn, New York, and as a young boy he was captivated and consumed by music of all styles, as well as the art of photography. James has recorded and toured with some of the most noteworthy rock icons of our time, including John Fogerty, David Lee Roth, Ozzy Osbourne, Slash, Zakk Wylde, Ace Frehley, and currently a member of the Grammy Award winning metal band Megadeth. His accomplishments as a photographer/videographer and graphic designer, include advertising campaigns and published books for over twenty years. When Angela revealed her idea for Wisdom of Wildly Creative Women, they passionately jumped into it as the perfect collaborative project for the two of them.
"Angela LoMenzo’s storytelling provokes a love and reverence for the lives of each of these creative women. Out of our life obstacles, adversity, and loss can come wisdom, greater integrity, immense power, and creative freedom. The fearless life stories and spirit within each of these magnificent women shows us to trust in divinity and follow our passions and our artistic reveries."
