This is a collection of the artwork of Friedrich W. Kreft. He immigrated to Wisconsin from from Germany after World War I. He designed church interiors and was known for painting extraordinary religious murals. Friedrich worked in oils, pen and ink, and watercolor. He designed furniture, wallpaper, carpet, and light fixtures. His works also included scherenschnitte silhouette and sculpture. He frequently used his family and surroundings as themes for his artwork.
I am married to the grandson of Friedrich W. Kreft and for Christmas I wanted to create a book of his grandfather's artwork since my husband is also an artist and is inspired greatly by his grandfather's works of art. I have discovered making art books is a way of honoring their artwork.
