Artist Statement

Keita is a mixed media painter specializing in florals, animals and portraiture.

Every painting reflects the inspiration she feels during that particular period of creation. Her realistic portraits and floral imagery contain a connective and spiritual energy that pulses through her work.

Influenced by contemporary artists and classical artists alike, Keita often recreates the images that come to her in dreams. A love and respect for mother nature and her cycles is found throughout Keita’s work, as her love of metaphysics and her interest in human emotion. She believes in the accessibility and practical application of art; that art ought to infuse and enhance our experience of daily life.

Keita received her first-class honors degree in Theatre Arts (Design & Technical Theatre) at Middlesex University in London, England.  She currently paints from the home she shares with her three children in North Vancouver in BC, Canada.
