From Our Editors
As a young girl, Boni Arendt was rarely found not fiddling with pencils, paintbrushes, and canvases. Her enthusiasm for creating inimitable works of art was brought into focus when she began honing her skills with formal education in the ‘80s, focusing her studies on painting and drawing techniques before earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from East Carolina University. Arendt’s journey to find her artistic voice led her to the U.K., where she tried her hand at interdisciplinary design, photography, and faking an English accent. Since then, she’s showcased her works at numerous exhibitions around the globe and opened Red Rooster Gallery in 2007.
At her homey studio and gift shop, Arendt shares the knowledge she gained throughout her many travels with aspiring artists of all ages during her private painting and drawing lessons. She also curates a selection of decorative items and art supplies for sale and produces highly realistic pencil drawings for commission.:m]]
