Chad Eric Keith was born in Colorado Springs, CO. His passion for drawing began at an early age. He continued the pursuit of art through high school, taking as many art classes as he could as well as private art lessons.
After attending Western State Colorado University, Chad changed paths. He began working in Manitou Springs, CO, at a fine dining establishment, where he worked for almost 10 years. Developing a passion for a different kind of art, he earned his way up the ranks to become Sous Chef. Chad then expanded his culinary expertise at restaurants in several states, all the while continuing to develop his natural artistic talent and passion for sketching.
Chad believes expression of art, on a plate or canvas, offers creativity, captivation, and emotion. As a chef, he has afforded his guests with excitement, pleasure and satisfaction. Now as a full time sketch artist he provides his viewers with sensuality, inspiration, and enchantment…and…Chad still enjoys the art of cooking.
Chad now resides in San Antonio, TX with his wife and son. He is a member of Boerne Professional Artists and San Antonio Art League Museum. He is also an active volunteer for Inspire Fine Art Center.
Chad encourages and accepts commissioned portraits of families and their pets.
