The Utopia Sparks Mysteries

jeffrey keith © andrew clark 2021 -28-BC





Contemporary American painter in museum collections, I model my tales with the palette knife of a deft storyteller. Now, my words are my paint. My eccentric cast of characters are alive and as messy as my studio.  I don’t know what is going to happen next. They are the drivers of the drama and dictate the plot. Through the complexities of modern life and the unique challenges of our times, they determine the ending. I now see the world through a fresh cinematic lens perfectly poised for saga. 

I grew up on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where I learned to love all things of the sea. A lifelong sailor, I sailed my fire-engine red racer Coyote, in the choppy waters of Buzzards Bay. Today, I live in Colorado with my wife and two teen-ages, all of whom provide endless inspiration for fiction. 

Keith works in a variety of genres, including Mystery & Contemporary Upmarket Fiction; Non-fiction Art Books; Illustrated Children's Books; and Novelty/Humor.  His next book LEFT BEHIND chronicles the decommissioning of power plants seen through the eyes of Photographer Jason Williams.
