Born and raised in Southern California, currently residing in Beaver Dam, Arizona. During my High school years, my first formal art instructor was Doug Oliver. A very well known artist for his incredible paintings of the desert skies. During this time in my life, I often painted windows during the holidays to make extra money. Soon after, I started painting billboards at “Valley Outdoor Advertisement“ in the Antelope Valley, followed by work as a sign painter for Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. Although I'm mostly self-taught, I studied and mastered background painting techniques for featured films under Serge Michael, at "Associates In Art" in Burbank California. I've been blessed to travel the world as a scenic painter and muralists, working for Lexington Scenery and Props in Burbank California. A list of former clients include: Disney, Paramount Studios, Busch Gardens, Clown Records, Delta Downs Casino, and Legoland in California. My various projects have brought me to many different locations throughout the world, including Germany and Japan. I’ve also had my work featured in People’s Magazine for the Titanic World Tour show.
Ken has won awards in all mediums including stained glass and stucco. He especially enjoys the bright vivid colors of oils. He has painted everything from 25 to 60 ft murals to his current series of miniatures over the last 27 years. He’s gained a wealth of knowledge from his close friend and mentor, Michael Cedeno, a Cal Arts graduate and a 25-year animator for disney. It was Michael who introduced Ken to the world of "Plein air painting", Plein Air has become Ken's passion and on any given day you can find him under his umbrella on the side of some country road capturing yet another local landscape.
