The Outer Banks is rich in history, from the early explorers who first set foot on its shores 400 years ago to the groundbreaking first flight that launched modern aviation. Every community has a story and a resonant heritage, and as a result, the Outer Banks is home to a number of locally and nationally renowned museums honoring the area's unique stories, culture and landmarks.
The 'Road Less Traveled' is a good poetic description of those living on remote Ocracoke Island. Artist Sonya Allen's path diverged to this idyllic beach and she opened up Art Ocracoke Gallery. She depicts the special qualities of village life in vivid colorful paintings of locals, beach animals, and landscapes. Her passion for the unique qualities of the outer banks and lifelong fascination with the natural world is shown in every perfectly placed paint stroke. She works in acrylics, oils, airbrush and digital art. Sonya Allen sells original paintings, prints, and other art stuff from her store on Creek Road near the Ocracoke lighthouse.
