Ariegaw is of Eskimo heritage and has been painting for over twenty years. Her artistic expression takes two paths.; one of an esoteric spiritual nature, the other path of imaginary expressionism. The things that inspire her to create the imaginary world landscapes and esoteric imagery paintings are the universes beyond and the natural world around her. Ariegaw loves birds, all manner of animals, and books that inspire her heart. She lives with her husband and two dogs close to the sea.
