Ken has been painting full time since 1990. He lives in Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders.
Most of my work is rooted in my love of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. I enjoy the wide open spaces of the coasts and mountain tops of the region and this is reflected in my work. Although I like to paint in a realistic style I edit the landscape quite freely when I feel it is appropriate to capture the effect I want.
Clear days in the mountains and on the coast have been a major inspiration for many years. The Rannoch, Glen Coe, Mamore area has to rank near the top, but I have always enjoyed the post-sunset afterglow in the highlands: when the wind drops away and sea or loch becomes a mirror a serene transformation occurs.
