Ken Knowles has been painting outdoors in oils for 28 years. His success has afforded him a beautiful home and studio in the art colony of Rockport Massachusetts, where he grew up.
Mr. Knowles studied with master Cape Ann painters T.M. Nicholas, John Terelak and Stapleton Kearns. A full member of several associations, Ken has an award winning reputation at a national level. His work is part of countless private collections in both the U.S. and abroad.
Knowles is fortunate to be painting what he loves for an appreciative audience, and continuing a tradition in American impressionism.
