About

Keith studied architecture at Kingston School of Art (now Kingston University) where he developed his drawing and painting skills in the Fine Art Department. He further attended courses at The Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design.

Now retired from a career in architecture that had its last fifteen years with a private practice in Winchester, he continues to paint following his first solo show in 1986.

He works in different media but his paintings usually start with drawing studies, often in charcoal.

His figurative tonal painting embraces many subjects but he has always enjoyed drawing from the model and painted many portraits.

Some of these had been selected for the new English Art Club Exhibition open exhibition in London in 2012 and the full exhibition was seen in Winchester in January 2013 and repeated at the Winchester Discovery Centre (Library) in November 2013.

In the past year he has been working on pastel portraits and studies of orchestras and musicians at rehearsal.
