R. Keaney Rathbun

As I get older I find myself seeking tranquility. I am less likely to squander my energy in turmoil.  I am following my loves and interests, distractions and travels. I am comfortable in my skin.  The making of my work - the incorporation of beauty and humor into my life’s subject matter - allows me to express personal feeling that I could not broach in words.


My mixed media sculptures and screenprints are autobiographical narratives. The images are figurative and gestural, and are deceptively simple metaphors of human experience. They are joyous and whimsical, emotional and poignant. They represent an optimistic and naïve spirit embracing the moments that make up my life.


I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband David.
