Consistent as a reliable source of beautiful, one of a kind, giclees and originals, his work is colorful and distinct. Ken's transitional style is easy for everyone to enjoy and his masterful use of color creates an amazing energy that emits from his work sending out a pleasing and tranquil feeling."
