Klaus spent many hours in his youth kayaking, boating and fishing in the Guntersville, Alabama area where his family own a lake house on Whitaker Lake. This early union with lakes, rivers and fishing were to become the focus of his art.

After receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art and Graphic Design from the University of Alabama, (Roll Tide), Klaus joined the Boeing Company at Kennedy Space Center in Florida where he illustrated many projects for the Space Program.  He discovered great fishing and painting subjects on the Banana River and Mosquito Lagoon.

A move to Stuart, Florida opened up a new world of coastal beauty. The Indian River, Intercostals Waterway and the St. Lucie Inlet provided ideal subjects for his art inspired by the paintings of N.C. Wyeth, Winslow Homer and C.E. Monroe. Klaus left the industry to become a full-time fine artist in 1993. It wasn’t long before his subjects included scenes from the Bahamas and the Florida Keys.

Klaus is a signature member of the Southern Watercolor Society, The Florida Watercolor Society and the Palm Beach Watercolor Society.
