About the Book
Keith Doles is a Jacksonville native who graduated from the University of North Florida with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design and earned a Master of Arts degree in Business from Webster University where he learned how to finance commissions and graphic design projects. It didn't help him land a job in the corporate world, but it was useful when Doles began painting portraits for professional athletes, friends and family members. Cubism and Abstract Expressionism influenced his style of fractured space with expressive color. In 2006, Doles began producing commercial art for web designers and small businesses from Florida to Wisconsin. Projects included prototype drawings, logos and illustrations for children's books and magazines. In recent years, he has taught a series of fine art workshops at several venues including the Jacksonville Arboretum and Gardens and the University of North Florida. Doles is a resident artist at the CoRK Arts District.
