Masha Keating’s paintings, whether oil, acrylic or digital, explore the visual elements found in the natural world around us. Her art stems from an intricate play between intense color, modeled light and abstract forms—all weaving a tapestry of emotions across the canvas. With a vivid palette and her signature meandering lines, Keating draws her viewers in and delivers a sense of energy and vitality that is present in each of her large scale paintings. Her deep connection with the feminine side of our world is palpable in every work.
Born in Moscow, Russia, Keating immigrated to the United States with her family in 1991. Upon graduation from Otis College of Art and Design, she settled in Santa Barbara, California, where she currently lives and paints. Keating has had over thirty-five solo and group shows combined and has been a member of numerous art organizations.
