About the Sutphins!


We are very fortunate that the Sutphin Family has agreed to come to our Artisan Open House on Saturday, September 21, from 10:00am to 2:00pm.

Colin Sutphin is an RTHS member and he graduated from RHS in 1961. He specializes in historical local artwork reflecting memorable scenes within Reynoldsburg & Truro Township. I feature his drawings and stories in the Courier. His medium of choice is pencil, ink, and charcoal. 

Dwain Sutphin was in the RHS class of 1967. Dwain’s medium of choice is felt-tip pens. His work is phenomenal! He also creates handmade fishing lures. 

Joe Sutphin is Dwain’s son. Joe is a professional artist who has illustrated several series of children’s books including, The Misadventured Summer of Tumbleweed Thompson by Glenn McCarty; Raffie on the Run by Jacqueline Resnick; Dr. Critchlore’s School for Minions by Sheila Grau; Word of Mouse by James Patterson; and many more. Joe’s medium of choice is pen & ink. You can view his artwork at https://www.joesutphin.com/work
