Keith Blessed

Keith was born in Doncaster in 1953.

In 2001, after a career in hospital pathology and the pharmaceutical industry, he took early retirement and made the move to Whitby.

He is a self taught artist and has settled on pastel as his preferred medium. He has been honing and improving his skills over the last 10 years.

He paints primarily seascapes and landscapes of the North East coast and moors, trying to evoke the ever-changing moods and atmospheres of this part of the country.

He likes the interplay of light on surfaces and likes to depict strong light and shadows in his paintings
