Keith Scaife

I was born in 1960 in Hampshire, England, and from quite an early age it was evident I would follow art as a career in some shape or form. I spent six years at college, first at Leek School of Art and Crafts ( the family having moved to Staffordshire ) getting a superb grounding in all aspects of art and design, then to Sunderland to study model making - at this point I was aiming towards the film industry, inspired by Stanley Kubrick's film 2001 A Space Odyssey, and many of the T.V. shows of Gerry Anderson

. I was also strongly influenced by the work of illustrators such as Syd Mead, Chris Foss, Peter Elson, and Bruce Pennington, to name but a few. In the mid 1980's I produced a number of pre-production paintings for a proposed T.V. series ( which sadly never came to be ), but this then led me directly into book jacket illustration, working freelance for many of the major UK publishers - for almost 12 years, producing covers for authors such as Iain M Banks, Greg Bear, Larry Niven, Bob Saw, and Brian Aldiss, among others. Recently, I have made a move back to model making, working for companies in both the UK, and the US.
