Jeremiah Ketner is a Chicago-based artist who depicts colorful, carefree, images of flowers and fairies. He met and married a Japanese woman who took him to Japan. Ever since, he has been mesmerized by modern Japanese aesthetics, and it shows in his work. Ketner is drawn to a simplicity that he finds in nature, particularly flowers. He studied at the Columbus College of Art and Design and the Southern Illinois University. Take Me To Your Special Place, acrylic on wood, 2007.
