Keith Barrell NDD. ATC.(LON.)  - Classical roots with a modern touch

Detailed View Exhibition and Charity Event

I hope you will enjoy browsing my website to review the diversity of new work that I have created.

I was trained as a Fine Artist, specialising in Sculpture, but over the course of my professional career in Art Education I have broadened my interests from to include Printmaking, Ceramics, Painting in Watercolour and Acrylics alongside other Sculptural forms.

My creative inspiration is rooted in the Classical sculpture, Art of the Far East and other contemporary Art and Design. Travelling around Europe and the Mediterranean over many years, I have been further influenced by its Landscape and Architecture. These influences are often apparent within the work on display.
