Collection: KEITH BATCHELLER

Born in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles, California, Keith Batcheller grew up admiring the images of the Southwest, the Old West and the native peoples of America. His early love of art led him to study at the prestigious Art Center College of Design where he earned a B.F.A. with honors. Later selected by Art Center to attend post graduate courses in Connecticut, Keith studied with some of the country's most acclaimed artists including Bob Peak, Mark English, Bernie Fuchs and Bob Heindel.

Keith Began his Career in New York City as an illustrator, and for the following thirty years he worked for major clients in New York, Chicago and the West Coast creating paintings used in the fields of advertising, publishing and the movie industry. He has done a significant amount of very recognizable work for Walt Disney Productions including movie posters for the films Pocahontas, Beauty and the Beast, Lilo and Stitch, and Hunchback of Notre Dame just to name a few.

Keith now devotes his time and energy to his true passion: painting western scenes and the variety of people who lived in bygone eras, as well as those who live in the contemporary west. Keith enjoys working mostly in oils on canvas using a stye know as "Painterly Realism." Telling a story and conveying a sense of emotion through each painting is Keith's goal- one which provides enduring enjoyment for all that see his work.

Keith has been honored with many accolades and awards in his career including the "Gold Medal for best oil painting at the 27th Annual San Dimas Festival of Art. "The Peoples Choice Award" at the Cattleman's western art show in Paso Robles, Ca. "The Best of Show Award" at the Gillman Historic Ranch Western Art Show. "First Place Award for wet medium at the WARA Western Rodeo Association." Peoples Choice Award at the Rawhide and Spurs Art Show at the Mountain Trails Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico. CA Art Magazine Award of Excellence. Best of Show award and first place in figurative oils at the Mountain View Americana Art Show in Easley, South Carolina.
