Keith Millison grew up in the nation’s Capital and as a child spent hours with coloring books and making intricate designs on paper. Even then he knew art would be a major part of his life.
After a 33 year career with a large U.S. company as an exhibit and graphic designer, Millison retired in 1992. Since then he has devoted much of his time to painting folk art images and exhibiting at art and craft shows in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New England. His paintings were received enthusiastically, with a number of collectors and folk art companies requesting his originals and prints.
Like many artists Millison believes his skills are God given. His primitive painting style is similar to many painters of the 18th and 19th centuries. Their work, like his, was referred to as "naïve" because they had not been schooled with any formal art training. On that score, Millison feels he is completely qualified! He enjoys painting rural country landscapes and reproductions of historic folk art paintings. His pictures are displayed in his own hand-grained frames.
Millison and his wife of 52 years live in a 100 year old farmhouse in the gently rolling hills of Montgomery County, Maryland. His work and home were featured in the Baltimore Sun in 2010. He enjoys being with his two daughters and five grandsons and continues to visit numerous museums and historic towns and homes.
