Arlene Mandell is an artist in Linville, North Carolina. Her portraits are displayed year-round at the Carlton Gallery in Banner Elk. A native New Yorker, she lovingly taught in Manhattan’s Head Start program. Switching gears, she joined a travel magazine in Miami, Florida, where she met the adventurous Captain Dan. Their permanent relocation to the mountains inspired a love of writing. Her memoirs “Eye of the Dolphin,” “Artist Borne,” “Gobsmacked in the Gulfstream,” and “Renegade Daughter” appear on the “6-minute Stories” podcast, and/or in Second Spring and Gateways anthologies.
