Often I have to lose the image in order to find it again. I focus on shape and color relationships. If I manage to capture the poignancy of a gesture or of the expression in the eyes, I am happy.

-Kathryn Keller


Arkansas-born Kathryn Keller now lives and works in Louisiana. She focuses on her immediate environment to create quietly profound images of the everyday, exploring a variety of subject matter, ranging from portraits and interiors to landscapes and cityscapes. Keller studied literature at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, which translates into a decidedly narrative quality in her work. She uses light, shadow, and composition to create a contemplative, romantic atmosphere that invites viewers into her inner world.
