Born in West Virginia in 1938 to a family of accomplished chamber musicians, Hiersoux learned the value of art and the discipline required of a true creative. In 1957, Arne moved to Berkeley to study at the University of California, where he originally studied architecture before shifting into painting. After graduation, he became a lecturer at his alma mater while co-creating the now popular brand, the North Face. He continued to paint until his passing in 1983, inspiring people with his ability to integrate art, business, and invention.
