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 explosion of creative output and the critical acclaim and astonishing success that 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, and from 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. In 1986, Lakey had a near-death experience in which he reported an encounter with angels. Though untrained as an artist and uncertain of what was driving him, he began producing sketches of his heavenly visitors. Showcasing over 100 of Lakey's finest pieces, this book chronicles his five-year explosion of creative output, critical acclaim and astonishing success. Full color.

Selected by One Spirit Book-of-the Month Club, 1996Review:
Lakey's story is quite incredible. Ten years ago, he had a drug-induced near-death experience in which he saw angels. Following his recovery, he was compelled to paint angels, even though he had never picked up a paintbrush in his life. It's one thing to paint, but it's quite another to have people interested in looking at your paintings. In only six years, Lakey's angels have become collector's items and are hanging in museums, public buildings, and private homes all over the world. This handsome book tells Lakey's story and offers anecdotes about the paintings and how they have brought hope into the lives of their owners, but it is the crystalline illustrations that are the volume's centerpiece. Though Lakey's abstract angels are similar in shape and form, the paintings are remarkably different--and that's no easy accomplishment considering how many he's done. In fact, Lakey has promised to complete 2,000 angel paintings by the year 2,000. He's finished 1,500 so far, more than 100 of which are reproduced here. An enticing wedding of mysticism and art. --Ilene Cooper --Booklist

Andy has found his path with the angels ... and we know that we can find ours, too. --James Redfield, author of The Celestine Prophecies
This handsome book tells Lakey's story and offers anecdotes about the paintings and how they have brought hope into the lives of their owners . . . An enticing wedding of mysticism and art. --Booklist
