Angel wings are Suzie Hartford’s canvas through which she expresses feelings of love and gratitude.

Using plaster and adding sculpting clays, putties, and other materials, she designs and builds one-of-a-kind, handmade angel wing sculptures for mounting on a wall. For her talk, she will be sharing over a dozen different sets of angel wings, some almost two metres tall.

Her 2019 collection is called “A Garden of Wings” because like a garden has many flowers, so her recent work has many different designs of angel wings. Her 2020 collection will focus on feminine empowerment.

During her talk, Hartford will also describe the life-changing moment that inspired her to use divine angel wings as her canvas.
