Dont Cry
I’ve had these characters in mind for a long time: two figures of fantasies damaged by reality. I’ve yet to figure out their story.
Be My Anti-Valentine
I have a love-hate relationship with Valentine’s Day. The romantic in me would certainly like to have a date and celebrate love on such a special day, but the cynic in me remembers that it’s a greeting card holiday made only for money-making that has nothing to do with the real St. Valentine. 

Hence, this piece. 
I have a love/hate relationship with love. The romantic in me wants to love and be loved, while the cynic in me remembers the hurt and confusion. The cruel month of February doesn’t help. 

Love makes me sick. 
I’ve mentioned before that Lie With Me is one of my favourite movies, but I don’t think I mentioned just how drawn I was to Lauren Lee Smith. Apart from being as beautiful as she is, she has such a bold screen presence that just drew me in as soon as I saw her. She’s also Canadian, like me, so that makes her awesome. 


Kate O'Keefe
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
I'm an artist/illustrator trying to separate fantasy from reality...and not doing a very good job of it. I'm also a liberal, sex-positive, bisexual feminist with a paintbrush in one hand and a pen in the other (if not a glass or two of wine).
Hello, everyone!

A few months ago, I was contacted by a lovely poet named Rita Maria Martinez, who discovered my work through this very site. I received a number of messages from her while I was in Muskoka with my family and didn't get to respond until I got home a week later. Since then we have been exchanging emails about my artwork being the cover of her new book and behold!

It has been a joy to work with Rita and I am so grateful for this opportunity. Copies are available today through PayPal in the link above or you can also purchase a copy here

Thank you to Rita for the opportunity and thank you to all of my family, friends and followers for all the love and support. I feel so proud!
