Today, we introduce guest artisan Glen Klein. Glen combines photography, graphic design, and a unique way of seeing his world to create his compelling works. You’re going to love seeing these and meeting Glen at Fall into Fine Craft.
What about your medium drew you to it initially and what’s kept you working at it?
I have been interested in Photography since high school when our art teacher introduced us to black and white photography. We had our own darkroom in the school. I majored in commercial art in college and have been in business for 30 years working as a graphic artist. I’ve combined the two art forms to create my own unique pieces.
If you had to choose a medium, other than your current one, what would you like to try and why?
If I could change the media of art I do, I would actually choose a career in music as a piano player. Some of my earliest memories include an old piano we had at our farm house. I was only around 5 years old at the time. I remember trying to pick out songs by ear and trying to figure out the notes on sheet music. Unfortunately, my parents never noticed my interest in the piano and I never pursued it further. To this day I still ache when I hear great piano music, longing for the ability to create my own.
What are you most looking forward to at FIFC?
I look forward to being a part of Fall Into Fine Craft as it gives me the opportunity to share my work with a whole new audience. Also meeting fellow artists and seeing their work will add to the experience.
