Artist Statement:

I gave my chair this name because I have always loved the poem that ends with “Always be helpful to others, and give what you can spare, for by being kind to strangers, we may help angels unaware.” I have also frequently called on God’s angels to watch over me and everyone I love. I have asked them to keep us safe from physical and spiritual harm. I believe they do this as angels are mentioned in the bible about times going about doing God’s work. Many people believe we each have our own angel, protecting and guiding us. It is said that children are closer to heaven than anyone else. Some believe that when a child has an “invisible friend”, as many children do, they are actually connecting with their guardian angel! For this reason I decorated my chair for someone’s “little angel”, as a safe haven for any child with wings.
