In Ken's own words:
I am a retired teacher/administrator from Norfolk, VA. I have lived in the Lindmoor Woods neighborhood for the last 18 years. My love for the creative process goes back to my childhood when it seemed I was always drawing or creating something.
Over the years I worked in various media including: painting, sculpture, pen & ink, mixed media, stained glass, and pencil. I became a regular at the annual Ghent Arts Show in Norfolk when I was in my stained glass period. I have recently displayed locally at the ArtTucker show at the Tucker Rec Center.
My creative journey has now brought me to my most recent interest - pencil drawing. Although I have had no formal art training I enjoy the challenge of trying something new. Pencil drawing has opened a whole new world of discovery. I love how you can manipulate pencil lead from very light to very dark. Pencil drawing is som much more forgiving and easier to work with than other media. The challenge of shading, texturing, and detail are most satisfying. My subject matter ranges form the quiet beauty of nature to the deep emotions of the human face.
