Abstract figurative artist
Rosalind Keith was born in Surrey, in the South of England, in 1965.
After completing her secondary education, she moved to Italy to study at the Charles H Cecil studio In Florence, where she gained a training in ‘Sight size’ portraiture, still life and nude. An inquisitive, independent mind led away from Classical realism to years experimenting in various painting mediums, using a more contemporary approach to her work to create a unique style in expressing her inner world.
Her initial ‘informal' work centers on the world of nature, where mountains and sea feature silently without human forms. The death of her mother in 2012 marked a dramatic turning point when she returned to the human figure, to express the emotions of maternity. Her current work focuses on the world of women and relationships.
Rosalind has participated in numerous competitions, classifying in first and second positions. Her work has been published in both Italian and International publications. Two of her images have also been archived in the collection of prints and drawings of Vittorio Sgarbi.
Rosalind’s work is in private collections in Italy and abroad and has recently been included in the permanent collection by the Diocesean Museum of Gubbio.
