Keith Snow’s journey as an artist is a literal voyage of creativity, navigating the ups and downs of artistic exploration of largely maritime painting. This is an apt parallel of his definition of his career to date. It comes as no surprise that Keith’s maritime focus is one birthed from a love of the sea and sailing.
“It’s gone from an interest...to a hobby...to a full-time job, “he says. “To attempt to fill a need to create something of beauty and of longevity.” His background is one of no formal training, of exploring the depths of maritime journals and books. My ideas and inspiration are mainly from reading. Books about early explorers, emigrant ships, local fishing craft and more.”
