Born in Wolverhampton, Keith Maiden turned down the opportunity to attend art college at 16 in favour of earning a living to help his parents.

He began his career as a shop fitter and factory worker, but it was on visiting a local printers to have his sketches photocopied that he was offered a job as a graphic designer. Keith went on to work as a designer for international retail brands.

However, it was a mere three years ago, following a move from London to Shropshire, that he picked up a pencil and sketchpad for the first time in 20 years. Keith decided to sell his new work at a local market and word started to spread about his art, which earned him much success and the rest, as they say, is history.
