Artist Statement

As a creative problem solver working across a diverse range of media, my artistic journey is driven by the relentless pursuit of innovative solutions and the exploration of possibility. Every blank canvas is seen as a new challenge. Each medium becomes a tool to articulate, question and redefine with an open mind and curiosity. Having this versatility allows me to work in a way that is dynamic and fresh and responsive to the unique demands of each project.


I have a wide and eclectic range of past work, from large glass installations to terrazzo floors, delicate watercolors to wire sculptures, loose pastel paintings to collage work, intricate mosaics to acrylic paintings, book projects to online teaching and more. Every piece is a testament to my commitment to breaking molds, pushing beyond comfort zones, and embracing the unknown. Through continuous exploration, I grow every day into the artist I wish to become.



Bebe Keith grew up in Hopkins, Minnesota. Always excited about art and especially drawing, she made sure every used piece of paper had a drawing on the back side. After graduation from Hopkins High School, she went to the University of Minnesota and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. Bebe went on to teach elementary school for twelve years including one year as an art teacher, earning her Master’s in Education from Hamline University. She also has a degree in Graphic Design from the Minneapolis Community and Technical College. She currently works as an artist.
