Embellishing light, shadow, color, and contrast while making sure composition is heavily considered, my hope is to show my subject matter with intensity. My name is Ken Williams and I first started my art career as a young student in the Southwestern part of Colorado until 1988 when I became a full-time student at the Art Institute of Colorado in Denver where I would earn my degree in Visual Communications.
My first big exposure was an exclusive showing of my art at the Hard Rock Café, where I was able to show my collection of musicians that were all exclusively done in pastel. The show was a great success which prompted me to start showing work in galleries. I was incredibly pleased to add ROX Arts Gallery to the list as it is loaded with talented artists and is just such a pleasant place to visit.
In addition to my pastels (which are always framed professionally with acid-free matting and UV coated museum glass), I have been painting in oils on canvas. My focus is to have my oils and pastels recognizable by having a similar style, although the techniques to create them are much different.
A big thank you to all my supporters, both past and present. I will continue to improve as it is my hope to bring as much value to my art that you so graciously invest in.
