About Ken

I am a 50 year old artist with gallery shows and published works to my credit. My experience is in highly detailed nature works, especially birds.

Presently I live in New York City and where I am working on a book about the birds of prey of NYC, for which you might find me out in Central Park, Inwood Hill Park or any of the other locations where hawks and falcons are found. Additionally, I am compiling works and information for a treatise on pencil drawing and the use of pencil and graphite in oil and other media.

At times some of my works are on display in this city, presently two paintings are hanging at Fauna, an exotic pet shop located at 265 West 87 in Manhattan.

Recent press on my work includes the fall edition of the Orthodox Union newsletter, in which I am shown painting a kosher duck with rabbi Chaim Loike, a specialist in kosher animals and their menorah.


My own knowledge of art started in my youth when artist Mina Tropp was a family friend, she encouraged me to learn. As a child I took lessons at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and from attended classes with Daniel Cristoffel and Robert Gifford.

Lessons from me can be set up in your home or in the field. I prefer to teach individuals with some experience and drafting ability, and can create specific lessons around a person's needs.
