Keith Lenaburg is a contemporary fine artist who lives and works in Santa Barbara, CA. He discovered early on that creating art is an essential part of his happiness, and chose to follow his passion by earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in painting from The University of California, Santa Barbara.
Lenaburg excels in a variety of media including fluid art, reverse glass paintings, and colored pencils. He uses vibrant colors and layers to create artwork that is both appealing and visually engaging, and is open to interpretation by the viewer. He finds fulfillment in creating special, unique pieces of art that inspire joy.
In addition, Lenaburg developed a technique that transforms ordinary photos into a work of art, using acrylic paint to create the reverse image on the back side of the glass and incorporating a paper inlay to give the piece added dimension. The resulting monochromatic piece looks like a photograph from far away, but as the viewer steps closer, it becomes clear that the image is formed from smaller abstract shapes.
Finally, Lenaburg specializes in colored pencil drawings. These pieces showcase his meticulous attention to detail. He uses vibrant colors, many layers, and expert blending to achieve photorealistic results.
