Bebe is a self-taught artist who is always looking for ways to stretch herself. For years she did stained glass mosaics, but she has moved into paper mosaics and is enjoying experimenting with metallic leafing, adding pen and painting to the collages and playing with papers and edges. She continues to do public artwork as well. Her work can be found in hospitals, airports, event centers, colleges and more across the country.

Bebe Keith grew up in Hopkins, Minnesota. Always excited about art and especially drawing, she made sure every used piece of paper had a drawing on the back side. After graduation from Hopkins High School, she went to the University of Minnesota and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. Bebe went on to teach elementary school for twelve years including one year as an art teacher, earning her Master’s in Education from Hamline University. She also has a degree in Graphic Design from the Minneapolis Community and Technical College. She currently works as an artist.
