About Arley Art
I am Arley Clark. I was born and raised in Bremerton, Washington.
Throughout my life I have been inspired and motivated by words of wisdom. By a quote or phrase, a song lyric or even an advertising tag line. During my career, motivational or thought-provoking messages were always on display on my office walls. It was frustrating that there was a limited selection of "display worthy" plaques, posters or art prints available in the marketplace. So I had to make my own.
Upon retiring from a management career in the sporting goods industry, I decided to check the market for my kind of motivational art. Thus, ArleyArt was born.
I have lived in Auburn, Seattle, Tacoma and Renton and Washington. Since 1981 I have resided in Springfield, Missouri - the middle of everywhere.
I've had a wide variety of jobs in my lifetime. My first job was working at my Dad's service station. I was eleven. After that I worked as a soda jerk/hamburger flipper at Dairy Queen, stock boy at Hickory Farms, grocery clerk, general helper at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Computer Operator at Keyport Naval Torpedo Station. In 1969 I went work for the Eddie Bauer company when it was a privately-owned sporting goods company. I started as night-shift computer operator. Over the course of my Eddie Bauer career I was a computer programmer, systems analyst, Inventory Control Supervisor, Manager of Operations Accounting and Manager of Catalog Call Center & Data Processing Operations. In 1981, I accepted a Director of Operations position with Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, MO.
Always been involved with sports (baseball, football, basketball, bowling) either as a player, coach or fan.
