Keziah Gabriela Burt
Keziah is a professional portrait painter and sculptor living and working in Cambridgeshire. Specialising in oil painting portraits Keziah has an exceptional talent for capturing a sitters features, evoking the essence of their character in an accurate and lively 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 commencing the final painting.
“ There is something beautiful and unique in each of us. I have spent my life drawing 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, 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.”
Keziah concurrently works in a range of three dimensional media including Bronze, Stone and Clay: exploring a variety of subject matter from abstracted natural form inspired by the sea to unique figurative studies.
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 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.
