Keister’s artwork has been displayed nationally at numerous museums, corporate, and

color, and detail. She wrote, “I use travel, museum study and my design library as
resources for my work. When I travel, I photograph anything that interests me: art,
architectural details, shop windows, food. I have had many opportunities in the past
several years to visit and photograph museums in many parts of Europe. I also pay
attention to the beauty and danger around me. I am interested in my own home,
neighborhood and garden, climate change and war.”
