Earle D Swope
A life long bibliophile Earle has naturally gravitated towards the Book Arts but works in other forms of art as well.
While only recently embracing art he has led an interesting and creative life. His 20's were spent as a US Marine, his 30's as a Firefighter and rescue diver leading to his 40's as an artist. Throughout his other occupations he expressed his creativity through the drafting of manuals, guides and the development of tactics and procedures. The result of his experiences has led to a fascination with perception, how we arrive at our beliefs and how we see everything. Earle enjoys the support of his wife Beth, 6 year old daughter Isabella and 2 year old son Powell as he creates art which he hopes will bring a bit of beauty and inspire some significant thoughtfulness into this world.
