Arms was a meticulous craftsman totally focused on etching. He worked 18 hours a day and might spend 1,000 or even 2,000 hours drawing the design on a single plate. Extremely energetic, Arms collaborated with his wife on several books and still found time to advocate for printmaking. In addition to making 150 demonstration prints in front of various audiences, he was a curator, author, speaker, consultant, and overall volunteer leader promoting American printmaking wherever he could.
