Madeline Kloepper - Illustrator
Madeline Kloepper is a Canadian artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a major in illustration from Emily Carr University of Art and Design. She grew up in the lower mainland of British Columbia but moved northward to the traditional lands of the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation, also known as Prince George. She lives happily in a little old house with her partner, Ben, and sweet pup, Heidi.
When she is not out admiring the mountains and mighty trees around her, you can find her in her making art in her studio, making pottery, sipping coffee or a combination of the three.
She has illustrated several children's books, including The Keeper of the Wild Words; Tiny, Perfect Things; Rooster Summer and Little Blue Chair. Madeline has even written a couple of her own: Outside Art and The Not-So Great Outdoors.
Madeline gravitates towards creating children's books that have a strong connection to the natural world or sense of nostalgia. She loves combining gouache painting with colored pencil and Photoshop when she's creating her artwork.
