Punaballoo

Angela Augustine
Wilmington, NC, USA

Hi! I'm Angela. I'm a self-taught artist with a love of all things cute and silly. I began painting in acrylics at age 3. For as long as I can remember my mom had me painting, crafting, and making. My creative life has included everything from a televised puppet show to standup comedy and knitting. All the while, painting has been a constant. Punaballoo was born by accident in the middle of lockdown, during the Coronavirus Pandemic...or should I say Pundemic? So punny. After being partially furloughed from my job and going stir crazy I started to do some painting for fun. I decided my subject should be my immortal, succulent, Walter. When the picture was completed I asked my husband how it looked. His immediate response was “Now, put Succ it on there.” I laughed and added the requested caption. Then shared my work on Facebook. My friends and family loved my quirky style and characters, encouraging me to sell my creations. Thanks for being part of my dream!

Art With A Cause

As someone who has been deeply affected by both mental illness and trauma, it is important to me to help others heal. That is why Punaballoo has partnered with the nonprofit organization, The Art Therapy Project. A portion of each sale will be donated to help fund the free art therapy classes they provide to those struggling with mental illness and trauma.
