It was in his formative years in Long Beach, California, where Ken grew up with his feet deeply planted in the surfing culture, that he first learned to express his art talent. Caught up in the ground swell of the 1960s surfing culture, Ken not only plunged into the sport of surfing but into the art and graphics of surfing as well.
"I simply want to achieve the ultimate communication on the canvas—to say more with less," Ken says.
Ken is at the forefront of American contemporary impressionists. He consistently walks away with gold medals and first place awards at juried exhibits. Renowned for his classic surf art, he shares with waveriders everywhere uncomplicated but moving stories on canvas.
