Originally from Chicago, Ken received a BFA from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He calls his style, "sophisticated chaos," where an accurate drawing gives way to an expressive painting. His works have a basis in the representational, but often dissolve into some level of abstraction. Ken currently resides in Bel Air, MD.
