Keith is a native of SE Minnesota. Halfway through a medical career, and seeking more from life, he tried his hand at goldsmithing and, blessed with the opportunity to learn from many talented artists and teachers, achieved commercial success in reimagining the works of ancient jewelry artists. Now retired from medicine, he hopes to honor his teachers by passing on his jewelry skills to the next generation of craftspeople.
