Keith Burgess is an accomplished fine artist working primarily in oil. He has received numerous one-man gallery shows, commissions, awards, and also teaches. His work is held in private and corporate collections.
His formal art education began at Valdosta State University and continued at Georgia Southwestern State University where he earned a B. A. Degree. After college he began a long career as a graphic artist/illustrator for a major publishing corporation in Atlanta, GA. Though he set aside painting during the early part of his corporate career, the urge to paint again lead him to pursue a fine art career on a serious level. In the early 1990's he began studying with nationally renowned artists on a regular basis. In 2003 he left the corporate world to become a full time painter and resides in the northeast Georgia mountains.
In His Own Words "While the human figure continues to interest me, I consider myself primarily a landscape painter, and oil my medium of choice. I find in the landscape a kind of spirituality and primal truth. I am honored to place myself in that long tradition of representational painters who have been inspired by the natural world around us."
