ANGELIKA´S CAREER WITH ONA

I am originally from Germany and started 
with ONA in 1970, and stayed until the 
end. I was the last one that went to 
the LAX base in the summer of 1970 when 
we started flying the Vietnam war, and 
we were a closely knit group out there, 
only three crews.

I have lived in San Diego since 1974.  
My husband was a physicist, he passed 
away 7 years ago and I am now by myself.  
I have worked for the San Diego Chamber
of Commerce for over 16 years, doing 
lobbying work on infrastructure and 
border related issues. 

It is a very interesting job. Through 
my job, I work quite a bit with many 
of San Diego's international 
organizations. 
 
In my "other" life, I am also a printmaker.  
I make wood cuts, lithographs, etchings, 
etc. and together with 6 of my artist 
friends, we have a show once a year, 
showing original prints.

Angelika´s art

The cards are photos of one my wood cuts. 
I carve the image and then make different 
blocks for each color.  Once the carvings 
are finished, I start printing the 
different colors first and then the black 
on top of everything. I roll printer's ink 
(oil based ink) over the block, then place 
my Japanese paper on top and use a wooden 
tool to transfer the ink to the paper. 

The trick is to keep everything well 
registrated. It takes a while to make a 
print, therefore, my editions are rather 
small. The original print is about 9" 
by 1.
