Keith Woodhouse, the second son of ROGER HILTON and ROSE HILTON, changed his name in 2010.

His early years were influenced by the colourful abstracts of his father, and poets, actors and other painters formed an important part of his life. He went to school in Penzance, then attended London University to read English. He was subsequently accepted into Falmouth School of Art but in 1988, struggling with his mental health, he was confined to psychiatric care. This continued off and on for the next 23 years. He currently lives in a care home in Devon, where he continues to paint and write.

Aside from his painting practice, Keith also writes poetry. Over one hundred of his poems have been published in magazines, journals, anthologies and zines.
