Angels are Heavenly beings created by God. There are different types of Angels, or different Angel Phylum. While most recognize only nine Angelic Phylum, Missy recognizes a tenth. See her FAQ section for more information about Angels.
Missy has posted a select few of her Angel portraits here. More will be added as we scan her past art and as she finishes new ones. She will be posting portraits of Angels from all ten Angelic Phylum so be sure to check back often or sign up for her Mailing List. To purchase an original or print, please visit Missy’s Art Shop. You can also sign up for her Art Commission Wait List if you would like a custom portrait of your own Guardian Angel.

The Archangels, or “Chief Angels”, are leaders among the various Angelic Phylum. Each Archangel helps God, other Angels, or God’s Children in some special way. On Earth we are familiar with only a few Archangels. While Missy paints these familiar Archangels, she is also introducing us to other Archangels through her art and writing. Missy hopes that these “new” Archangels will inspire you and help you grow just as much as the ones you already know and love.
While many, but not all, Archangels can look much like humans, they are not. We don’t become Angels and they don’t become us. Like Guardian Angels, Archangels do not always appear with wings, so not all of Missy’s Archangel Portraits feature wings. Missy will sometimes simply suggest wings like the fiery feathers behind Jophiel in God is My Beauty or the large, dripping watercolor puddles behind Gabriel in Gabriel the Wise.
Guardian Angels are our protectors. They watch over us from birth to death. Time is one of their major focuses, they keep us in time with our life plans and God’s big plan for this world so that we are always in the right place at the right time. Most people have two or more Angels watching over them. While many, but not all, Guardian Angels can look much like humans, they are not. We don’t become Angels and they don’t become us. Like Archangels, Guardian Angels do not always appear with wings, so not all of Missy’s Guardian Angel portraits feature wings. Missy will sometimes simply suggest wings in some creative way (like the fiery feathers behind Jophiel in God is My Beauty).
