I'm Angie

I'm a So-Cal designer, artist, and teacher with a quiet confidence and a go with the flow ATTITUDE.

I aim to live a playful life led by curiosity and experimentation.

I'm a wife to an enthusiastic and talented musician and elementary music specialist (note: Mark is also OK's shipping manager). I'm a mom to three beautiful, fun, inspiring and spirited little boys. A daughter to a thoughtful Architect (Dan) and strong and skillful "maker of everything" momma (Barbara). A sister to two talented and creative sisters (Steph and Jillie) and one inventive brother (Ben). And the mom to two older-ish rescue pups (that are occasional turds, trash eaters and squirrel chasers). I love them all.  

This is OK

OK by Angie is a marketplace and creative studio that invents playful, bright and artful objects, lessons and stories that send waves of optimism and confidence into everyday life.

I believe that designed surfaces tell stories, that colors have the capability to influence our moods and marks can shape behavior and how we interact with our environment.
