Keith Huie was born and raised near San Diego, California. He was never formally trained but learned through watching his father, who was a very talented artist, photographer and writer. He was also severely depressed and according to Huie, it extinguished much of his creative energy.
All of my art is filtered through a childhood of harsh darkness and absolute perfection in equal amounts. Everything I do carries bits of both realities. It is only recently that I have begun to appreciate it.
