About the Artist
Keith Patterson began painting at the age of fourteen. His artwork includes award-winning cartoons, paintings, murals, and numerous corporate logos. Keith works with acrylic on canvas blending a variety of techniques that he has developed over his career as an artist. He has closely studied the work of the Masters and you may get a sense of Van Gogh, Monet, Pollack, and others while viewing his work.
Nathan Keith Patterson III, who signs his work NKP III, is a native of Danville, VA. He earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from George Mason University and is an avid musician and songwriter. He is a past winner of the Mid-Atlantic Song Writing Contest and arranged and performed the soundtrack for a Nike commercial that received both ACE and CAB award nomination.
According to Keith, “Ever since a boyhood adventure led to my discovery that the appearance of light changed when it passed through the glass from the bottom of a cola bottle, I’ve been fascinated with how light is made of the full spectrum of colors. I try to capture this phenomenon in my paintings.”
