Keane has lived in Norway since moving from the US with her parents at age six. Although she is based in Norway, Keane says: “My art style is also influenced by my frequent trips back to east coast America and the different colour palette I sense there.” Working in many different styles, Keane is inspired by a broader range than the classic Nordic landscape. “First of all, I am intrigued by the patterns the colour pigments make after the water has dried,” she says. “I’m very focused on art history as a source of inspiration. I’m also incredibly taken with the forest and sunsets I see from our house, due to the forest’s close proximity to my home and the fact that I live 400 metres above sea level. Additionally, I’ve got a lot of inner pictures and use my imagination when I create my works of art.”
