Ken Knowles


Ken Knowles is a native of Rockport, MA. He has been painting impressionists paintings outdoors for 24 years. His success professionally has afforded his family a beautiful home and studio in the seaside art colony “Cape Ann”.

Ken was trained in the tradition of the early 20th century artist under his pier group. The following teacher/artist Stapleton Kearns, John Terelak and T.M. Nichols influenced Knowles to study and become an award winning artist nationally.
