Montpelier, Ohio – Art has the potential to transport us to places we have never been. Jake Dewire, a senior at Montpelier High School, has never been to Paris – he admits he probably never will. But Jake was inspired by his girlfriend, Megan Steele. Jake explains: “She made me want to be able to capture the city of Paris within my hands and give it to her.” He seems to have succeeded – Jakes’s dramatic drawing of the Eiffel Tower framed by a heart (which is formed by two hands) seems to transport the viewer to the far-off “City of Love”.
Jake is the son of Craig and Gerry Dewire. He is busy with many activities in school: football, track, archery, student council, National Honor Society, and Senior Class Vice President. He stays busy out of school with church (St. John’s Lutheran in Montpelier), hunting, snowmobiling, and spending time with family, friends and Megan. After high school he plans to attend Bowling Green State University and study architectural design. When asked what he likes about art, Jake says: “I enjoy being able to express myself and my feelings through my artwork. I also enjoy being able to create images in my head, using my imagination, to develop views that I may never witness in my lifetime.”
Kannel Superior Agency, Inc. is proud to feature Jake’s work in their office and invites the public to stop in and see his drawing during the months of December and January. The office is located at 301 West Main Street, at the heart of historic downtown Montpelier. For more information, contact Chris Kannel at 419-485-4281 or firstname.lastname@example.org
