We had the good fortune of connecting with Brenda Angel and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brenda, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
I have several affirmations that I love to repeat to myself daily. However, my favorite is “I am complete spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.” This affirmation reassures me that I complete in all aspects of who I am. It allows me to show up for myself and others as my authentic self.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
As an artist and creator, I always knew I wanted to make a difference in the world. It all came from this idea to create designs with some words of affirmation. My mission was to inspire and encourage others to be their authentic selves. That is how B A Soul came to fruition. Starting Basoul has allowed me to grow both personally and professionally. I’ve had the opportunity to work with other very talented artists. In my personal life, I can say I have grown very much ever since I created basoul. I stepped into this journey not knowing how or what I would have to do to make it happen, but even in the difficult times. I see my strength, passion, and my determination to keep going and learn more about myself along the way.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The city has many places to visit, food to eat, and things to check out. I love nature the beach would be first on the list. We would go to the plaza, Olvera. They have a beautiful Mexican marketplace. Then we would make the drive to all the amazing murals around the city. There is so much to explore, but it’s even better when you have company.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Throughout my journey, I’ve had my family’s love and support. I’ve met many people who have constantly supported me. If I would name them, I would never finish. These beautiful humans have come into my life to express their support unconditionally. They encourage me to keep going. They believe in me and my vision as an artist. They inspire me to reach greater heights.
