Monica Arledge

Growing up in the Peruvian Andes, I used to ride my grandfather’s horses. That love never left me. I enjoy portraying them but more than a picture a feeling of a long-time memory. 

As a self-taught artist, my genuine admiration for the human figure became a passion for me. When I work on a portrait, a face, or a figure there is story beneath it all to tell.

I was born in Peru, I moved to North Carolina in 2006 when I got married. I am a certified Spanish instructor and I have taken a couple of workshops in Tryon with Rich Nelson and in Columbus with Dale McEntire
