The most important influence on Deborah Keller-Rihn’s
artwork has been Eastern philosophy and the mythologies
and rituals of various cultures. She often uses photography
and then experiments with different techniques to integrate
her photographs with other media.
Keller-Rihn has a BA in humanities from the University of Texas at San Antonio, teaching certificates in art and communication from University of Texas at Austin and a master’s degree in art from Texas A&M, Kingsville. She is working on her doctorate in depth psychology and archetypal studies at Pacifica Graduate
Institute in California, which houses the archives of myth-ologist Joseph Campbell.
Her work is in the permanent collection of UTSA and the Texas
Blood and Tissue Center.
