Interests and Personality

BiographyI have been a resident of Hampshire for all my life, and as I lived near the sea, and not excelling at other sports, I took up dinghy racing in my teens. Many years later after winning two championships, my increasing age was starting to tell and I retired from the competitive sailing scene. I still remember the thrill when I sold my first picture. Now with over 200 originals sold in the UK, USA, Canada and Europe, I still get a buzz when a painting is sold, though you do become attached to them, and am sad to see them go. I tell my wife that she must not be sentimental over it. Obviously my love of the sea mean that marine and coastal subjects feature significantly in my work. I am also fortunate to have some beautiful English countryside nearby to inspire me, and I try to capture the magic of this in my landscape paintings. Examples of some of my previous work and commissions can be seen on my website www.artyman.co.uk

Hi Ken, your sea and landscapes are brilliant. It's good to see them here on the black background. I hope you will add the other beauties also soon. Like the wonderful cars.

Hi Ken, Thanks for stopping by. I checked out your website. Congrats on your sales. You do a great job with the boats, as well as your landscapes. I really liked "Just Add Water", the title really makes it work. Keep painting!
