Ken is a lifelong painter, having taken a detour to practice corporate law, only to return full time 15 years ago to his passion for painting. Classically trained at the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, Ken paints en plein air in all seasons.
“Painting changes how you see the world, particularly how light, color and atmosphere are observed. A strong painting should convey the essence of those elements from nature to canvas. There’s a delicate balance between painting in a representational style and conveying something emotional and expressive. It’s about leaving something unsaid that each viewer may interpret individually.”
Much of Ken’s work is done on location throughout New England, including the grey beauty of Nantucket and the powerful Maine coast. Every summer he travels to Maine’s legendary and breathtaking Monhegan Island. He also enjoy painting still lifes, which lend themselves to exciting uses of color and composition.
