Keith is a life student of watercolor and water media painting. His work focuses on unique compositions and creative subject matter. His main subject matter is social issues and memories through reflections of his childhood and personal experiences. Keith places emphasis on the strengths of design foundations and exploration of new methods in watercolor. His inspiration comes from found objects, photo arrangements, and life experiences. Keith’s creative process is simple –– he explores compositions and ideas through sketches, determines the best approach to the subject, defines a plan for the painting, adjusts the composition as needed, paints utilizing layering methods, and define areas of the work using energetic color.
