Ken earned his BA in Visual Communication Design from Purdue University and his MFA from Yale University. He is an Assistant Professor of Foundations and Applied Arts at Western Connecticut State University.

His long-held interest in rendering detailed materials serves him well in both his ventures as a realist artist and trompe l’oeil painter.
