The Artist, Denyse Klette

Denyse Klette was the perfect choice when it came to selecting an artist to portray the boy in this book. Denyse, like the boy, has a fiercely entrepreneurial streak that has remained intact since childhood. She loved the stories and had an immediate understanding of the boy’s nature. Although she has worked in many art mediums and can paint in many styles, she chose to capture the era for this book by using a soft monochromatic presentation, reminiscent of daydreams, memories and the early days of television. Then, she called upon her experience as a portrait artist to depict the detailed emotion in the boy’s face. The resulting paintings make viewers feel like they have just stepped into someone’s memory. For information about Denyse Klette and the many projects she is involved with, please visit
