Keith Doles is a Jacksonville native who graduated from the University of North Florida
with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design in 2001. In 2005, he earned a
Master of Arts degree in Business from Webster University where he learned how to
finance painting commissions and graphic design projects. It didn't help him land a job in
the corporate world, but it was useful when Doles began painting portraits for
professional athletes, friends and family members. His influences include Cubism and
Abstract Expressionism. And, his graphic design and painting style is a mix of fractured
space with expressive color.
In 2006, Doles began producing commercial art for web designers and small businesses
from Florida to Wisconsin. Projects included prototype drawings, logos and illustrations
for children's books and magazines. In recent years, he has taught a series of fine art
workshops and courses at different venues including Michael’s Art Stores, the
Jacksonville Arboretum and Gardens and the University of North Florida. Doles is a
resident artist at CoRK Arts District in Jacksonville’s Riverside neighborhood.
Doles’ work has been featured in regional galleries including the Ritz Theatre &
Museum, MOCA Jacksonville Lab Gallery, Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, Haskell
Gallery at Jacksonville International Airport and the Morean Arts Center in St.
Petersburg, FL. He continues to design for clients across the country and displays his
artwork in galleries in Northeast Florida. His work can be found in private collections
and public institutions.
Princess Simpson Rashid is an American abstract painter and printmaker. Her current body of work explores the relationship between color, perception and symbolism.
