Achim Arthur Klaas grew up and was educated in Canada.  The early influences on him showed themselves in the expression of inner feelings and passions of the people depicted in his artwork for which he achieved awards and international recognition in his young career.   The ability to capture underlying aspects of emotions and spiritually meaningful expressions has set his work apart and gained him a reputation in ecclesiastical art.  As well his studies at university in the fine arts and architecture combined to create a unique mix of disciplines culminating in a completely unified approach especially when applied to church design.

Today, after over 30 years of experience, Achim is still the principle artist / designer and owner of Klaas Design.  Though he heads a team of several technicians and support staff, he is personally involved with the concept development and creation of every project.  The pursuit of total quality, originality and complete satisfaction for the client is never compromised.  His belief is that he is merely giving a response for the gifts he has been blessed with, by always trying to pursue the optimum of the potential.
