About Angeliska

Angeliska was born at 11:11am on the 10th day of the 1st month of the year, in Austin, Texas.

She loves: smelling things and remembering, the golden light of the magic hour, cobalt blue glass, crescent moons and silver stars.


Angeliska, I was researching my family tree online and ran across your tribute to your grandfather. It’s fantastic. We are related — 3d cousins, I believe – anyway, your tribute is beautiful and I wish I’d known Charlie.

Dearest Angeliska, its been awhile sinceIi have checked into the Gazette. I am heart broken to learn of the passing of your dear Grampa Charlie. He lives on in you and in our treasured memories.

Angeliska, it was great fun meeting you and the other ‘birthday ladies’ today. I have a strong feeling that you and I could make some Super Spectacles together. You are easy to know and love. My aka, Chris Columbus, is because I was born on Columbus Day in 1492. Bless you, little Dear. I hope to see you down the road. Look in on my Son at Guerillasuit in Austin. Go safe and come back to see us.

Hi Mary Beth,

I think maybe you’re thinking of someone else? I did briefly work at Angeli on Decatur in 1999, but never went by Cherry. Good luck finding her!

bright wishes,

Hello Angeliska, I tried to contact you via the “write me a note” feature here on your website, but the email keeps bouncing back. Do you have an email address where I can best reach you regarding an event inquiry? Thank you!

just loved your splendid piece on the late miss driscoll
so glad to have read it

just learned she passed
boo : (
googled just now while listening to a street cd of her from pre katrina days, playing in the street with a hard edged man singer/songwriter
whose name i wish i knew

we had a brief conversation in which i overshared with her how i was down there visiting new orleans with a bad sad man with whom i was obsessed he would never love me

miss driscoll said gaze into my own eyes in the mirror and tell myself i love you, as if i did
perhaps i did not at the time and she kindly sensed this

surprisingly her advice helped
and have loved her since
and myself

you write so vividly & well:
thank you for posting this remembrance!!

kindest regards

Hey Angel, I remember I met you in New Orleans in 2005. You helped me carry a my of groceries to the house I was house sitting on Rue Clouet… Anyway, I came back to St. Augustine, Florida after a year in New York (2007) and 5 years in Colombia and now I am married to Matt. I just thought of you and looked you up and found your this website.

Where do you live now? I think often about my crazy stay in New Orleans. Happy new year 2018!
