He pursued his passion through High School and earned several awards including a Gold Key from the Scholastic Art Awards, 2nd place in the Montana "Paint the State" anti meth contest, and The John and Anne Taylor Scholarship. With this scholarship Ken was able to continue his studies at the Ashland Academy of Art. He learned the fundamentals of drawing under Russian Master Semyon Bilmes. The school moved to Maui and Ken moved to New York City's Grand Central Academy. He studied under modern masters Jacob Collins, Edward Minoff, Josh LaRock, and Scott Waddell. Ken then returned to the West Coast to continue his learning by taking workshops and painting "plein air" in the land he loves.
