  • Creative Juice

    A little about who we are.

    Onsite creative streaming is provided by the owners of ARTU4IA, John Kleber and Carol Ludwig Kleber. They consider it a privilege to have you at their studio and to offer you guidance for your success. The only thing separating creatives from non-creatives is practice, so weʼve been practicing and invite you to join the fun!

    John has worked for Warner Brothers and Disney as an art director and production designer and also is an illustrator for numerous national clients. Heʼs worked as a concept artist for Wes Anderson on the film “Life Aquatic” and has received an Academy Award Nomination for “Redux Riding Hood”, an animated short film that he worked on as art director.

     

    Carol graduated with a degree in Visual Communications from the
    Art Institute of Pittsburgh. She was honored to be an understudy, painting egg tempera background and posing as one of the models for American Master Harold F. Edmonds.
