MEETING START TIME: 7:00 (Pacific time)
Keiko Tanabe, AWS, NWS, AIS, LPAPA
What a thrill to welcome Keiko Tanabe as our demo artist in February!
Japanese born, her family was an art loving family and it was natural that she became a young, award winning artist. Education and her professional positions in international relations included extensive travel in Europe, Asia, and North America, and her work reflects her love of travel and cultures around the world.
As with many artists, the desire be an artist grows until it demands notice. An introductory drawing and watercolor class gave her confidence enough to illustrate a book written by her father, a renowned scholar of French literature. Thus began her intense study of watercolor, moving steadily toward the master she is today.
Keiko exhibits worldwide and her stunning paintings are in both private and corporate collections. Her art is often included in leading art magazines, and has been enjoyed in nine self-published books and four instructional DVDs. She travels as an outstanding workshop instructor, demo artist, and juror for many prestigious exhibitions. Keiko is on the advisory board of American Watercolor Weekly magazine and is a faculty member for the Plein Air Convention & Expo. Keiko resides in San Diego, CA.
