Representational Fine Art -
Along life’s journey, each of us is confronted with opportunities to try new things, change direction, and explore new possibilities. Do we dare to cross over the portals of the unknown and explore the mysteries beyond what we know? Or do we choose to continue on, never knowing what might have been?
Faith Bradburn Keller, an award winning artist and graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design has spent the past 25 years trying to live by that statement. “Life is too short not to do what you enjoy and were created to do,” she says.
With Faith's love of nature, she finds it intriguing to explore and discover texture, form and light. The way light and color reveals itself in nature is exciting which influences new possibilities as depth and realism is revealed in each of Faith’s paintings. Which in turn, expresses beauty and identity in her art that allows the viewer to participate as well, oftentimes reflecting on past memories, experiences and feelings.
Since a small child, Faith has been fascinated with expressing her observations and experiences creatively. Gaining insight and skill through painting en Plein Air, on location, and capturing light, colors and the moment as it exists in the natural world. Painting on location allows Faith to feel more connected to her subjects and to understand the light and mood. She also enjoys spending time photographing nature, landscapes, and man-made items to use as reference back in the studio for future paintings.
Painting in acrylics and oils and pushing the medium further each time she paints continues the growing process as she evolves as an artist. "This growth brings with it a new level of creative awareness in myself and in my art."
