Chris returned from Los Angleles, California to Toronto, Canada in 2011 to return to his artistic roots, but soon opted for a less hectic pace of city life, to a home in the magnificent cottage area of Muskoka where he resides to this day.
The abundance of wilderness and animal life around him soon became the driving influence in his work. Foundry casting costs for bronze sculptures have risen dramatically over the years so Keene turned to acrylic paints on canvas as his creative medium. His love for photography and computer graphics skills from Disney are some of the techniques Keene utilizes to create his unique compositions. Currently, his paintings are focused on the interaction of man and wildlife as they collide in the most innocent circumstances during any normal day.
