    Artist's Biography

    Keith R. Breitfeller was born and raised in Catasauqua, a small town in eastern Pennsylvania, in 1952. He proceeded to attend Kutztown college, studied with New York Artist Marion Pinto. He also studied at the Barnstone Studio.

    He now resides in Philadelphia, where his work was shown at Sande Webster Gallery, Vox Populi, Finer Things Gallery in Tennessee, and the Adrian Falcon Gallery in Texas and Lyman Eyer in Massachusetts. His work is included in many private and corporate collections in Washington DC., New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York. Keith has also become an avid tango dancer over the last 10 year.

    Keith’s work has been influenced by the impressionist, modernist and pointillist. He uses figure to ground relationships to deliberately confuse the subject matter, allowing the viewer to find, him or herself, in the artwork. His aim is to provide a place of peace and contemplation to the viewer.
