Artist Kathleen Keifer draws inspiration from Southern California's beaches, roads and landscapes, including the iconic imagery that defines this part of the world, with its palm trees, old "woodies" cars, lifeguard stands, ocean sunsets and Route 1 signs. Her work has been featured in numerous publications, including Angelino Magazine, SouthwestArt and Coastal Living. She published an anthology of her work in 2006, entitled Perspectives on Coastal Beauty: from Malibu to Manhattan Beach.
Keifer's paintings are widely collected by art enthusiasts who appreciate her skill at capturing the human dimension in beach and other Southern California scenes. The artist lets us peek over her shoulder and envy her characters, who live in such "perfect" settings amid the striking beauty of this part of the world.
Keifer lives in Manhattan Beach. She is a second generation artist who sustains her legacy, nurturing the artistic talent of her husband and their three daughters.
