When I'm not researching, writing, painting or designing journals, I enjoy visiting historical sites. Many of my works are directly influenced by time spent at historical locations throughout the USA.



 Academically trained in research and writing as an historian, I am also a self-taught artist.  In recent years, I have forged together my love of writing about early American history and art to create works that I hope will inspire people to study America's rich past.  

As an independent historian, I have served as a featured speaker at various engagements to educate people on topics related to early American history.  My articles can be found in several publications, and my art has been showcased in various exhibitions.

I am now painting moments in early American history; producing a new line of  handmade stationery products; researching, and writing about the early Republic. My upcoming book, Rough Diamond:  The Life & Times of  Colonel William Stephen Hamilton, is a biography of a son of Alexander & Elizabeth Hamilton and is in the process of publication.

Trehan's Treasures is the name of my studio and represents all my art and writings.   



Although I have worked with oils, watercolors, and mixed media, I primarily work with acrylics. I believe working with acrylics has challenged me to grow as an artist and develop my own individual style.


" I have had the pleasure of meeting some very fine individuals in person and online. One such unique individual was a woman named Angelina Fielding who has more passion for this type of history then anyone I have ever met. She has authored books and has painted some of the finest portraits of Patriot people and places I have ever seen. She worked on a commission for me and was enthusiastic and very easy to work with. She quickly  came up with a theme for the painting  and finished the project well ahead of schedule. I would recommend this fine woman for any project that has a deadline and needs to be a cut above the rest." - Stephen 

"We are a small, non-profit organization who utilized her services. While she was only with us for a few months, her artwork will literally be around for years to come." - Eric

"Angelina, I have no words....What an incredible creation you have done for me!!! Everything you included is nothing less than perfection.

"My daughter, who is a freshman, has thoroughly enjoyed Angelina's history class this past year. The lectures were engaging and the assignments were kept simple, which allowed my daughter to learn better because she wasn't bogged down with busy work. Angelina clearly loves what she does and has a true passion for history and art. She uses art, lectures, books and field trips to educate her students. This class was a great experience for our family!" - Erika
