Keith Grinter MA&D, BFA, BBS, NDH

Keith runs the Grinter Glass studio in Whangarei, where his focus is on developing his glass blowing skills, particularly the shard pick-up technique. He has worked in a range of media including glass (painted and blown), oil painting and sculpture from recycled materials.

His paintings on canvas and glass are based on blind contour drawings made while walking. The concept of drawing while walking was developed for his Master’s degree as a means to investigate the everyday.

Keith exhibits in Whangarei, Whanganui and Wellington, including Te Papa, Pataka and Sarjeant galleries. He has won The Doyle and Anne Robinson Glass prizes and been a finalist in the Australasian Ranamok glass prize. In 2011 he received a Merit Award for his painting Procession at the Carey Smith Awards at the Whanganui Arts Review.

He taught at the Quay School of Arts, UCOL, Whanganui for 3 years, where he completed a BFA in 2007. He was awarded a Masters of Art and Design (First Class) from AUT University in 2010.
He is currently mentoring distance students for The Learning Connexion.
