Keishia Treber is best known for her Canadian Landscape, and Stylized Wildlife Paintings. Born and raised in the small town of Revelstoke, BC, Keishia has called Kamloops home for the past 12 years after attending University in 2006. Keishia’s work often resembles scenery and animals from both areas.
The artist’s first inspiration for creativity started at an early age when living in Revelstoke. The vast mountain ranges, countless wildlife, and snowy story book winters have always been an inspiration to re-create such natural beauty of her surroundings. “Painting the thick forests, brilliant sunsets, adorable animals, and mountains of Kamloops and my hometown bring happiness to my heart. Creating these artworks help to keep my cherished memories alive, bringing me closer to a more organic and humble self. I have many fond memories of my time with nature, friends & family both in Kamloops and Revelstoke” – Keishia
During her art career, Keishia has explored the female figure, creative animals, and landscapes through many different materials and mediums, specifically watercolors, acrylic on canvas and paintings on stained wood. After completing the Fine Arts Diploma Program at the Thompson Rivers University in 2008 Keishia began painting custom commissioned paintings for friends and family. Later in 2009-2012, she explored painting lustful images of the female form, highlighting perhaps a fun and vibrant stage in her early 20’s. As Keishia’s art career developed her practice evolved solely into Canadian Landscapes and Stylized Animal Paintings, featuring a simple yet intricate and feminine design. Keishia continues to create art full time in her home studio in Kamloops, BC, where she loves selling her work at shows and through her online store.
“I am very proud to be an entrepreneur in this era. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to travel throughout BC/Alberta to meet my customers and showcase my artworks in galleries, craft shows, festivals, and even wholesale my prints to boutique stores. It has indeed been such an amazing journey for both my creative and business soul.”
