Keron Beattie

Keron has shown his work throughout East Anglia as well as in Somerset, Sussex and London, and internationally in Italy and Spain.

Keron Beattie has plotted several professional pathways during his working lifetime, switching from his full-time work as a mental health professional to develop his early creative interests by attaining a BA (Hons), First Class Degree in Contemporary Art and Design (2016) from Norwich University of the Arts (NUA). He followed this up with an MA Fine Art Degree with Distinction (2018).
His methodology has developed into a more deliberate production process that encourages a way of seeing and making that re-evaluates the quality of his materials, allowing new ideas and forms to coalesce as each piece emerges. The nature of the component objects he is fascinated by is revealed as each work nears completion.
