Showcases over one hundred paintings of angels by the artist who encountered seven angels during a near-death experience, and discusses the healing power of his art on others

Blackwell North Amer
On New Year's Eve 1986, Andy Lakey had a near death experience during which he encountered seven angels. The experience changed his life and ultimately touched the lives of countless others. After his recovery, Lakey sat for hours, sketching pictures of the heavenly visitors who saved his life and gave him a second chance. He didn't fully understand what was driving him to constantly draw these images until 1990, when he was revisited by three angels who appeared in a ball of light. When the artist emerged from this vision, he had a clearly-defined mission: to create 2,000 angel paintings by the year 2000. Today, Andy Lakey is one of the world's foremost painters of angels, and his works are collected by museums and art lovers around the globe.
Showcasing over one hundred of his finest pieces, Andy Lakey: Art, Angels, and Miracles chronicles this unique artist's six-year explosion of creative output and the critical acclaim and astonishing success that has embraced him. Filled with testimonials from those who have been touched by the angel paintings and their healing power, from art critics who affirm the quality of the art to collectors like President Jimmy Carter, author Betty J. Eadie, and actor Ed Asner, Art, Angels, and Miracles is a natural extension of Andy Lakey's effort to share his extraordinary and inspirational art with as many people as possible.
