Ken started his working life as an apprentice at Swindon Railway Works. He started as a rivet hotter before becoming a signwriter and training at Swindon Art School. Since then, Ken has spent most of his life as a muralist.
A large proportion of his work was commissioned by Richard Branson, and many of Ken’s creations adorn the walls of Virgin establishments throughout the world, including megastores, hotels, and airport lounges. With the launch of Virgin Atlantic in June 1984, Ken produced what is probably his most well-known work, the Scarlet Lady emblem, which features on the airline’s aircrafts.
Ken’s portfolio includes over 100 murals including work for Madame Tussauds. He continues to produce his own paintings and practices printmaking using images from his childhood memories.
