Sadly Ken died on December 2nd 2016
Ken has been interested in painting and drawing throughout his life and would have liked to have gone to art school, but that was not to be. Since early retirement painting has been his main interest. He's lived in Leicestershire for nearly forty years and enjoys painting in the area, although he is also drawn to the wilder parts of the British Isles. Although largely self-taught, Ken has been influenced and encouraged be several well-known Leicester artists, including James Kibart, Robert King and Michael Coates.
Ken has been President of the Leicester Sketch Club and of Crown Hills Art Society. Primarily influenced by what he sees his work has developed from the accurate depiction of the topographical, to a celebration of the drama of light and shapes in the landscape, showing an increasing interest in the abstract.
