Artist’s Statement

Known for her passion for color, AJ Keith’s paintings convey spontaneity and energy.

Using the palette knife in lieu of a paintbrush, AJ captures a variety of subjects including florals, seascapes, and landscapes with bold strokes and texture. “The choice to paint with a palette knife instead of a brush is similar to the impasto technique which gives the painting a sculptural feel” says the artist.

AJ has studied at the Art Students League of Denver and is currently studying with a private instructor. Her work has exhibited throughout metro Denver including the Colorado Collection at DIA, Framed Image, Alpine Fine Art, Denver Athletic Club and Columbine Gallery in Frisco. She is a member of The Art Group; artists who gather for artistic camaraderie, to share practical tips in the creation and business of art and to celebrate the art spirit.

“I find joy in painting and hope to share this with my viewers”
