Annabel Keatley was born in 1966 near London. She received her Bachelor of Art in Painting and Drawing at Edinburgh College of Art in 1988 and her Masters of Art at Chelsea School of Art, London in 1989.
In 1990, after completing her Masters, Annabel received the first of 2 awards from the Princes Trust to work with a Russian artist in Kiev, Ukraine. The exchange led to her first solo show, funded by the British Council and The Princes Trust , which traveled from The Arbat Gallery in Moscow to West London . From there on she had solo shows in central London until her move to Spain in 1996.
During the years 1993-1995 Annabel won awards to paint in both Jamaica ( The Triangle Workshop) and Andalucia ( The Delfina Studio Award) and she lead a Princes Trust ‘Partners in Europe ‘ creative project in Moscow with young Russians combining papermaking, puppetry, photography and theatre.
Her most recent solo show was at Galeria Cartel, Granada in 2015.
Annabels work can be found in private collections worldwide.
In June 2016 she opened ‘Espacio Creativo’ in Almuñécar, Granada.
