Andy Lakey was born in 1959, in Châteaurous, France. He died in 2012, in Temecula, California. His given name was Andrew Markivich. The Markivich family immigrated to the United States in 1961. Andy Lakey was a self-taught prolific artist who created a vast body of work including paintings, lithographs, custom jewelry, and books.

On New Year’s Eve 1986, Andy Lakey had a near-death experience, in which he reported an encounter with angels. Upon his recovery he began painting images of angels. His highly textured angel paintings were created specifically for the blind as one can touch them and feel the outline of the angels.
