Posted: Friday, November 18, 2005

Age: 17

Grade: Senior year

School: Juneau-Douglas High School

Art of choice: She is a self-proclaimed "theatre nerd." She makes masks and props.

How she got hooked: She saw flyers hanging up around the school to make masks for the production of "Jungal Book."

Why masks: Angela enjoys the creativity allowed with a mask, the ability to change the character throughout the process of building.

If only: She would like to learn how to make leather masks.

What if: She wonders how an artist might make a functional set of performance masks out of Jell-O.

All in the family: Her mom makes cards. Her dad enjoys stain glass.

Other activities: Rowing.

You should know: She has a bearded dragon named Talon.

Her drama teacher, Bethany Bereman, says: "Angela works independently, committing to a project and seeing it through to its entirety. She pays attention to small details and problem solves constantly. Angela is a fundamental part of the Juneau-Douglas High School Drama Department."

Where to see her work: She is the chief mask maker for the high school's production of "The Passage Inside." Showtimes are 7 p.m., tonight and 2 and 7 p.m., Saturday.
