Pepka has been a devoted sleight of hand artist for over 20 years. An expert playing card manipulator, Pepka does not perform mere card tricks that everyone's uncle does. In his hands, playing cards appear, vanish, change color and have a life of their own. While playing cards are his favorite medium, the way other artists work in oils or watercolor, he does not limit himself. When you watch him perform, you are also likely to see silver coins travel invisibly from one hand to another, small rubber balls appear, vanish and change to a piece of fruit, your favorite piece of jewelry vanish only to reappear where you least expect it. All of this is done with such charm and grace that always takes away the sting that you have just been fooled.....badly.
