Introducing Keith

 

How lucky am I? I get to earn my living by drawing, painting and making stuff - mostly a mess, as paint and turps, plaster� and glue fly everywhere in my eagerness to create.

 

I used to have a real job, a 25 year teaching career in Primary and Special schools, before I managed to escape my headteacher�s job in 2005.

 

I then studied for my Fine Art Degree and am now a freelance exhibiting artist. I work extensively as artist in residence in schools, manage community arts projects and run classes and workshops for adults.

 

I am co-proprietor of Ribble Valley Art Studios in Clitheroe.

 

I work quickly and often frenetically, making drawings and paintings representing people and place. I love to explore colour and light, and have become increasingly interested in capturing brief moments in a swiftly moving world through drawn line. I like my work to suggest movement and drama.

 

Why not have a look at what I have to offer?
