The Artist Says:


I paint what I like and try to sell it instead of painting what sells and trying to like it.



Collectors Say:


Ken’s goal is to depict not only the individual in history but also include the objects of the era in proper context with his subject. 



Dealers Say:


The richness of his watercolor is what makes Ken's work special. 



Other Artists Say:


Much as Blake is a storyteller with words, Ken documents stories of those who have come before with his astonishingly provocative images. Regardless of the subject, ancient Puebloans of the American Southwest, a Dog Soldier of the Southern Cheyenne, or a Dragoon of Napoleon’s Imperial Guard, Ken’s characters come forth, from the surface, to meet us eye to eye in this century.
