Amaranth Ehrenhalt - ART CART Oral Histories

Ehrenhalt, Amaranth; Hernandez, Lucia; Research Center for Arts and Culture

This Oral History explores the story of Amaranth Ehrenhalt and how being an artist is more of a way of being than a chosen way of living. She exposes her childhood memories about making art and how she always knew that there was nothing else that she wanted out of life than to draw and paint. Her view on life is that creativity is inherent and it enabled her to create colorful and inspiring work. She also emphasized how being an artist is about discipline, emotion and inspiration to share with the world and that each individual has to create their own path as an artist.
