Keith lives and works in his native Sussex. Driven by his life long urge to create, his artistic output takes many forms. An incredibly accomplished wood engraver, achieving increasing critical and commercial success.
His sculptures are equally varied; from the towering bonfires to more permanent public sculpture. Letter and lettering are a common thread throughout his career, when he first left school, traditional signwriter was his first calling and letter carving in both stone and wood continues that thread today.
Over arching all his various strands of work is a clear, keen empathy for his natural surroundings, tapping into the intimate knowledge we have gathered in the evolving interaction with our natural environment, often utilising this knowledge in much of his work.
Here at Kevis House Gallery we stock a range of Pettit's finely executed box wood engravings, an art he has been practising for over 20 years.
