Story telling on canvas and the love of creating with paint and yarn, Vale, NC
Arie loves to paint memories of her childhood on the farm in the 20s and 30s western North Carolina. She started painting in the 1950s and is proficient in oils and watercolor. Over the years she had painted more than 1,000 paintings. She is a renowned artist in the Folk art field. She has recently taught herself to knit and crochet and loves to make hats and scarves. We both love to paint and crochet.
The American Dream
I think everyone in America has a dream. My American dream was to be an artist. As far back as I can remember I was interested in painting. I remember back when I was in high school, I was so excited to be asked to design and draw the covers of the Junior-Senior prom programs. We did not have typewriters or printers so we had to do each one of them by hand.
God has truly blessed me with a wonderful gift that I have tried to live up to and for that I thank Him so much. I have tried to show in my paintings the way farm life was for me growing up. All these things are in the past and are no more. Most of the old home places I have painted are now either falling down or gone.
Most of my paintings are based on memories of the past that are so clear to me. I hope in some way I can bring back a memory to someone of their past. A part of that life is gone forever and only footprints left behind. My footprints are my paintings.
