Pat Keegan Celtic Pathways Studio

Pat Keegan Celtic Pathways Studio, Bethlehem, CT Artist Statement As an artist, I have always worked to develop my vision. I love jewelry…designing and creating unique pieces is a joy. Stunning natural gemstones, pearls, crystals and sterling silver are inspirational factors in designing beautiful jewelry that feels great and looks fantastic. The luster and softness of timeless pearls which come in a myriad of shades from soft pink and cream to bold Tahitian are given a contemporary look. My Serenity Series of therapeutic gemstones in bracelet and necklace styles is created from beautiful gemstones that have healing, therapeutic qualities. My jewelry is both bold and subtle. It makes a statement. The pieces bring confidence, beauty and joy to the woman who wears them. Using my creative spirit gives me joy…. Creativity is an essential spiritual practice growing out of faith, grace, gratitude, hope and love. It is the pure and simple delight in being alive. Bethlehem Connection and bio notes: My late husband, Ed, our son Sean and I moved to Bethlehem in 1978. We built a contemporary, country home here. We were all involved in town, volunteering, serving on town boards and committees. I received a BS, MS in Art Education and a Sixth Year in Administration and Supervision from Southern Connecticut State University. I taught art at Shepaug High School for 35 years and retired after teaching a total of 43 years. As an art teacher I received numerous state and national awards for my innovative teaching, including Runner-up CT State Teacher of the Year in 1992. My Ireland experience ( GiClee Photographs..An Artist’s View of the Emerald Isle) has won many awards and is an extensive collection of professional photographs from 1973 to the present. Consequently, I have had numerous one woman shows and my work is in many private collections
