Meet Rick, the craftsman.

Rick Duprez and his wife, Susie, live in Klamath Falls, Oregon, where he works with epoxy resin and other materials to design unique countertops, charcuterie boards, and other home and decor pieces. He has been a craftsmen for decades, always finding new ways to create functional art. Rick just fulfilled one of his lifelong dreams by completing the construction of his small workshop and art studio.

Rick was born in a small New England town and was interested at a young age in working with wood, staining, painting and creating. He painted houses during high school and was fortunate to work for an “Old School” Master Painter, Gordon McKay, who is one of the most skilled craftsman Rick has ever met. Gordon awakened the artistic nature in Rick and the realization of his “right brain” thinking. Gordon instilled in Rick an appreciation of craftsmen and the importance of developing the skill to repair, restore or duplicate their work. By taking Rick under his wing for over three years, Gordon gave Rick the foundation to do restorative work and faux finishing and instilled his love for high quality, handcrafted work.

 

In the 1980’s, Rick moved to the Napa Valley, California where he continued to work his crafts while employed by others. By the early 90’s, Rick established a small high-end cabinet finishing business. The success of that business was predicated on Rick’s ability to give his clients fully custom finishes created exclusively for them. Each finish was created in Rick's shop using paints, lacquers, glazes and various antiquing techniques designed especially for the client. After their kids went off to college, Rick and Susie moved to Klamath Falls.
