Our Founder

Among the many different subjects Keith Padgett paintings are his splendid landscapes. A native of Florida, Keith is well known for his landscape paintings depicting the land of his birth. He began painting these pristine places deep in the swamps and woodlands of coastal North Florida fearing they would not always remain unspoiled. Keith’s paintings evoke a sense of fascination and tranquility reflecting his personal experience. Keith captures the infinite beauty he sees in these mysterious places through his unwavering attention to detail and use of unusual color to establish a unique sense of light and atmosphere. Keith Padgett began his artistic pursuits as a teenager in Perry, Florida. Unique among his family and friends in his love of art and music, he began his formal art training under the direction of Jules de Romand Bacot, a continued source of inspiration and friendship.After working for Busch Entertainment, Keith formed his own company Art-FX Studios, which has become internationally recognized artistic design firm offering creative design and artistic services since 1985.

We invite you take a see some of Keith’s fine art collection.
