Robert B. O’Keefe was born and raised in New Jersey. He has always been interested in the arts including theatre, which, as a young man, he studied at The New Theatre School in New York City. His main interest now is in sculpture and creative stained glass. He learned basic stained glass techniques from the best stained glass artist in the country. As far as sculpture goes, Bob is completely self-taught and still learning and developing his technique.
His favorite medium is driftwood found on the local New Jersey beaches. He takes the basic shape and fashions it into something meaningful, finishing it using various techniques such as sandblasting. Recently, Bob has created windows and lamps of various sizes and shapes in stained glass, many on commission.
