Meet Coral Keehn
Coral Keehn moved from Prince Rupert to Williams Lake in early 2015. It was a big change for her and her family, but she found the people of Williams Lake to be open, friendly and welcoming. She immediately got involved in the arts community, something she had done for many years when she lived in Prince Rupert, including serving as the vice-president of the arts council there.
It was in Prince Rupert where her professional art career began to take off. Coral has always been artistic, and has been doing watercolour painting since she was a young teenager. She had done it mainly as a hobby for many years, that is until fellow artists in the arts guild in Prince Rupert encouraged her to get out of her comfort zone and push herself. She began showing and selling her work locally, developing a following and making a name for herself in northwest BC. Now that she lives in Williams Lake, she is focusing on serving her new community. She is involved in the Station House Gallery and hopes to continue that relationship for many years.
Art is very much intertwined with every part of Coral’s life. It is an outlet for her creative passion, and when she sells a piece, it brings an indescribably sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. “There is something incredibly personal about making something and then selling it and having people support my work,” she says. Coral illustrated the timeless children’s poem “Wynken, Blynken and Nod” in a colourful 28-page book, and she is also creating her own line of gourmet spice blends.
Creative. Inspiring. Original. Unique.
Watercolour artist Coral Keehn is drawn to colour, texture and light. The unique and transparent nature of this most unpredictable, unstable and unforgiving of mediums lets the light dance nimbly and gracefully through her paintings and gives them a sumptuous and luminescent glow. It is this fresh, spontaneous, and elemental quality that affords Coral the opportunity to express emotion, moods and whimsy with a raw and unconstrained freedom. Coral Keehn offers a distinctive style of originals, reproductions and art cards for sale. Her work is showcased in her recently published and beautifully-illustrated children’s book, Wynken, Blynken and Nod based on the beloved Eugene Field poem. Coral Keehn is available for mid-sized mural work, illustration work, small scale art workshops for children, youth and adults.
