Georgia painter, Keith Burgess, would classify his work as Neo-impressionism.
Though known for his landscapes, he is equally adept at painting still life and portrait genre. He has received numerous commissions and awards and his work is included in private collections throughout the United States.
His formal art education began at Valdosta State University, and he received a B.A. Degree from Georgia Southwestern State University.
After college he began a long career as a graphic artist/illustrator for a major publishing corporation in Atlanta. Though he set aside painting during the early part of his corporate tenure, the urge to paint again lead him to pursue a fine art career on a serious level in the early 1990s. He then began studying with some of the Nation’s top artists, attending classes and workshops in his spare time. In 2003 he left the corporate world to become a full time painter.
