Heather Keaton Painting

2016, 48″ x 48″, oil on canvas.

Heather Keton has been painting since childhood, when she was gifted a class in landscape oil painting and realized that combining birch trees and fireworks makes people uncomfortable. She attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she focused on writing, bookmaking and lithography. Her return to painting began as a break from her typewriter 15 years ago. She has since exhibited in Chicago, Portland OR, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn.
