Angela Buckley

Visual Arts Faculty

Angela Buckley is a faculty member at CU Denver and earned a Bachelor in Art from Ohio University in 1996 and a Master of Art in Photography from Arizona State University in 2001. She was granted a National Graduate Fellowship from New York University at the Tisch School of the Arts in 2001.

Buckley exhibits nationally and has shown her Fine Art Photography at Savannah College of Art and Design, Texas Tech University​, Lightwork, Rhode Island School of Art & Design and more. She has participated in over 30 group exhibitions and given numerous public lectures in the past ten years and has received multiple awards and publications.

She has owned a portrait business for over 10 years and has photographed the following people: Idena Menzel, Nancy Pelosi, Bill Owens, John Hickenlooper and Helen Thorpe, Ashley Judd, Joe Biden, John Malone and more. Her specialty is “Children & Family” and her sessions are closer to an advertising shoot and they are unlike most typical family portrait sessions due to her attention to details and pre-planning. All her portrait art is made with the finest care, equipment, printing and framing materials as learned in fine art school.

Angela Buckley’s fine art work is influenced by her love for family, traditions and psychology. Her work involved miniature photos of people who are “cut out” of their original photograph and placed into new contexts. Both her fine art work and her portraiture are inspired by Lady Clementina Hawarden, August Sander and Annie Leibovitz.

Buckley has been a Lecturer in the College of Arts & Media at the University of Colorado Denver since 2007 and is working on a Photography Documentary Project for the History Museum of Colorado.
