E. J. Klepinger, Host

Growing up in the mountains of Colorado, I developed an artistic love of nature at a very young age. Working in acrylics, pastel, pen and ink and pencil, my focus is to honor the spirit of my subject, whether it be animal or human portraits, book illustrations or my own artistic endeavors. Life is amazing and I love celebrating it realistically, though I enjoy arting in more of a loose way at times, too. I never know how the subject wishes to be depicted until I begin the art. I now live along the shore of Lake Superior surrounded by that sacred space that I have always loved, nature.

‘We collaborate to create wheel thrown ceramics with hand-painted imagery from the natural world. Combining the beauty of native flora and fauna with clay forms, we attempt to bring the solace and wonder of nature into the home through pieces that are handled, used and loved.’ – Rita Morris & Barry Sands
