Born in Thibodaux, Louisiana, Keith has been painting all of his life. He sold his first painting at the age of six. In his early teens, he attended numerous watercolor workshops with internationally-acclaimed artists. His concentration was on grasping a little from each instructor to develop his own personal style. Watercolor, being less forgiving and providing a challenge, has become my favorite painting medium. The transparency, the airy quality that a watercolor possesses, and the freshness obtained by touching the paper only once, is what I strive to maintain. Planning is the key to a successful painting. I believe that you should plan like a turtle and paint like a rabbit allowing some room for spontaneity. My focus is on strong design, the juxtaposition of colors, and the interaction between light and shadow. It gives me a great sense of accomplishment to see the blank paper come to life with a "painterly" style that I believe makes my work so unique. With numerous awards and signature memberships in the National Watercolor Society, the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and the Louisiana Watercolor Society, Keith's reputation has brought his works to many public and private collections throughout the United States and Europe. Keith is listed in Who's Who in American Art and American Artists of Renown, and has been featured in American Artist and The Artist's Magazine.
