Biography


Keene Wilson refined his artistic skills at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art and at the Animation Guild under the tutelage of numerous painting, drawing and design masters, but he stated that he owed his greatest artistic debt to my years of study with his plein air, colorist mentor Elio Camacho, his impressionist mentor Vadim Zangninian, and  his studies with master watercolorist Fealing Lin. He held two masters degrees, was a retired City Manager and a former Army airborne/ranger/green beret having served with Special Forces in Viet Nam in 1970/71. He had two sons, Wyatt and Skyler, and was married to Debbie Kurita, also a retired City Manager.  Keene passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on September 17, 2018.
