Northfield artist and art educator Angie Ekern finds inspiration at the water’s edge from the wild and gentle beauty of nature.  She sees each piece of driftwood as a work of art and uses its natural beauty to create new forms.  Angie lives in a little blue house on Plum Street in Northfield with her husband and two children and a dog a named Oshie. She teaches art at Prairie Creek Community School and the Northfield Senior Center.
