Angie King’s Inspiration

I’m pretty sentimental, so anything that sparks memories of my childhood—all kinds of 80’s music, pipe organs, opera, classical music, black and white photographs of my grandparents, renaissance art, the victorian era, foreign films, connecting with nature, the paranormal, ancient folklore, the Philippines, gothic cathedrals, Catholic saints, freethinking. Depeche Mode, Giorgio Moroder, Kate Bush and Andrea Bocelli are a few of my favorites. Love, pain, death, and the unknown.
