Ken believes it was his travel overseas and his life experiences that encouraged him to start sculpting in metal 4 years ago. It is the New Zealand landscape that provides the inspiration for his work, in particular, the mountains and the sea. Travelling through these areas gave him glimpses on which he bases his paintings (sculptures).
The combination of a two dimensional medium (painting) with a three dimensional medium (sculpture) lets Ken provide a quite unique form of expression. It enables him to experiment widely with new ideas and techniques. Stainless steel is his preferred medium as it allows him to sculpt the metal to provide reflections and depth.
His skills as an artist were originally honed on the work shop floor as a panel beater and he has used this training combined with his obvious artistic flair to produce works that are totally original and eye catching.
