Boni Arendt grew up in eastern North Carolina, studied Art Education, and graduated with a BFA in Painting and Drawing from East Carolina University. She moved to England for a year where she painted portraits and studied Interdisciplinary Design at Berkshire College of Art and Design. She was fascinated by architecture and design as she traveled to Egypt, Amsterdam, France and Italy.

Back in the United States, Boni opened The Red Rooster Gallery where she began selling art and teaching art lessons. She has since then acquired a Masters in Education. She served as an art teacher at Champion Learning Academy in Morrisville, NC  for 3 years where she taught ages 4-High School, afterschool, summer camp, and specialty art lessons for 3 years. Boni currently enjoys oil painting of contemporary figurative themes and landscapes where she inserts her inspiration from Italian Renaissance Art. She also continues to produce murals, portrait commissions, as well as teach painting and drawing lessons and workshops in her home studio.
