H. Cedar Keshet Fine Art

About the Artist

H. Cedar Keshet, BFA
Paonia, CO


Heidi “Cedar” Keshet was raised in El Paso, Texas/Sunland Park, New Mexico. She spent many hours in the desert of southern New Mexico, near her family home, on her horse, with a sketchbook in the saddle bag. The light, colors in nature and huge expanse of sky was being infused into her artistic psyche as a young person. Keshet feels a deep connection with the land.


I paint as a way of distilling the feelings of completeness and joy I experience from the landscapes of the Western United States. When a viewer of my work feels a connection to place, then I have succeeded in my work. I believe that painting the beauty of the West documents and supports these lands. I hope this will move others to recognize these amazing places and advocate for them as well.”


Keshet has participated in many exhibitions, plein air events and fine art shows. She studied art at Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee, WI where she earned a BFA. Cedar is a member of Oil Painters of America and Plein Air Artists of Colorado.


Keshet lives in western Colorado where she creates art, hugs trees, pets dogs, kisses equines, and dabbles in Biodynamic farming.
