Celeste Keller is a Toronto based artist, a figurative, oil painter who focuses on the connections between the figure and the space that surrounds it. Water is a recurring theme in her work. It allows her to explore abstraction as it occurs naturally, resulting in paintings that harmoniously combine realistic and non-objective elements.
Celeste received her formal training at the University of Guelph from 1989-1994. Studying under Tony Scherman, Margaret Priest, Ron Shuebrook and Greg Murphy, she obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. In 1995 she attended the Ontario College of Art to further her Painting and Drawing skills. She later attended George Brown College where she became certified as an Interior Decorator and a Feng Shui Practitioner.
Celeste began exhibiting her paintings throughout Ontario in 2007. Her work is collected world wide and has received several awards.
