Keziah Gabriela Burt
Keziah is a professional artist living and working in Yorkshire with her young family. Specialising in portraiture Keziah has an exceptional talent for capturing a sitters features, evoking the essence of their character in her beautiful contemporary style. Her focus is always to create a portrait that reflects the personality and unique traits of the sitter, really getting to know them through conversation and study, prior to creating the final artwork.
“ There is something beautiful and unique in each of us. I have spent my life studying the faces around me, each day finding renewed enthusiasm for my subjects. The human face and figure are eternally intriguing, from the secret smile in the expression of a mother in a moment of calm. The innocent joy of a child bursting bubbles in the garden, to the humbling tenderness in the face of a man holding his first grandchild, these are the faces I paint. These are the moments that no mere photograph can render.”
As a multidisciplinary artist Keziah creates portraits in a range of two and three dimensional media including Bronze, cast stone and ceramic to commission. Having recently moved her 3D practise to ‘The Creative Studio’ in York, Keziah is able to work concurrently on private and public commissions and take sittings in the studio.
Keziah received a First class Degree and Masters in Fine art at LUSAD and went on to participate in several group and solo exhibitions in the UK and Germany. She has a ferocious appetite for learning and studies with fellow artists and mentors to constantly develop her practice. She is a qualified teacher of Fine Art and often works in Primary and Secondary schools as a visiting artist to deliver dynamic creative experiences for children from age 4 to 18.
