Ken Cowins was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne in 1955, now working and living in the beautiful county of Dumfries and Galloway.
Ken creates oil on glass original paintings which entails working on the reverse side of the glass and starts with the foreground detail and working to the background (very challenging but very rewarding).
He is completely self taught and has been creating art for the past 10 years.
Ken draws his inspiration from the landscapes of the Lake District and Scottish Highlands having been a landscape photographer for over 20 years.
Ken's style is colourful/vibrant and dramatic, he is looking forward to the future in which ever way his art takes him.
