Ken Eason



Recently, my work has been about the natural processes in nature. Communication between plants and animal, the cycle of life and decay and the movement of water in the environment. I use marks and symbols to help convey meaning and feeling.

Ken works primarily with oil and encaustic media and has been creating since 1992. Since his first solo show at the York Street Gallery, Kennebunk, he has been in numerous group and solo shows from Boston, MA to Bar Harbor, ME.  In 2005, Ken won first prize in painting in the Sculptural Pursuit, “Start the New Year with Peace” Art/Literary Competition and received a several page color photo spread of his work.  Ken participated in the annual International Encaustic Conference from 2009 – 2012 and has taken several encaustic and professional workshops, but is mostly self taught. In 2017, he started teaching Encaustic painting techniques.

Active in the local arts, Ken is a juried member of the Art Guild of the Kennebunks and New England Wax. He was president of the Sanford Art Association from 2002 – 2006.  Ken’s work has been collected by the Rochester Museum of Fine Arts, Rochester, NH;  Rand Direct, Edison, NJ; and is held in many private collections worldwide.  Ken works and lives in Acton, Maine.
