A little bit of our history

Cathy and Arnie started Ridgway Graphics in 1995 while living in Ridgway, Colorado. At that time, Cathy was a handweaver, creating large wall pieces and rugs with hand dyed wool. She was captivated by the complex use of design and color found in textiles from around the world. Wanting to share her love and knowledge of weaving, she started the “Imprints” textile notecard series. Her textile drawings included Navajo Weavings, Kente Cloth, Molas, Mud Cloth and American Quilts.

Arnie’s long time interest in photography began with black and white landscapes of the American West. As a young boy growing up in the Sonoran Desert, he spent hours exploring the desert. His interest in photography led him far into the back country, capturing the natural world on film. Because of his vast knowledge of open space and location, Cathy was able to develop her own artistic instinct and skills. Through time Arnie began working in color and he and Cathy combined their skills of photography and painting. They have since created a large portfolio of Southwest landscapes and native wildflowers. 

Cathy , Arnie and Rita, their energetic black lab, live near the beautiful red rocks of Sedona, Arizona and work full time in their studio. In this artistic setting, they continually explore the relationship of art, nature and landscape, and how it connects us with the past and the present.
