Ken Eason

 

Ken has been painting abstracts in oil and encaustic since 1992. He is inspired by the endless shades of blues and greens in the lakes, ocean, mountains and woods of Maine and New Hampshire. Ken is interested in texture and color and uses brushes, painting knives, spatulas, rags and fire to manipulate the medium to achieve a unique expressive view point. Ken has degrees from UNH in Biology, Psychology and Computer Information Studies. He is an active member of New England Wax, Sanford Art Association, The Art Group and a juried member of the Art Guild of the Kennebunk’s . Ken lives in Acton Maine and his work can be seen on his website.
