Born in Beaumont, TX in 1968, Keith Watson moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado in 1974 where he remained until moving back to Beaumont to begin middle school. Keith attended Lamar University and earned his Bachelor of Fine Art degree under Jerry Newman rounding out the youngest group of painters to descend from a distinguished list of internationally acclaimed artist, “Newman’s Kids” as they were affectionately termed.
Impressed by the humid, stuffy, atmosphere, and jungle like swamps in South east Texas, Keith Watson set out to portray the landscape he had come to adore. Twenty years later he has remained faithful to the same imagery. His work is held in many private collections across Texas. The artist currently resides in Fort Worth, Texas.View Keith Watson’s Art
