Ken started his working life with an apprenticeship at Swindon Railway Works; he started as a rivet hotter but later became a signwriter. Following a training at Swindon Art School, Ken has spent most of his life as a muralist.
A large proportion of his work was commissioned by Richard Branson hence 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 all the airline's aircrafts.
Ken's portfolio includes more than 100 murals including work for Madame Tussauds. Alongside this Ken continues to produce his own paintings on canvas and practices printmaking using images from his childhood memories.
