My name is Ken Searles I started on my Journey in the art world with my first painting. I completed this painting at a place called “Fear No Easel” in Charleston, South Carolina, several years ago. I found that I really enjoyed creating and the process that goes with it. I soon was painting and drawing, first with Pastel, then moving to Acrylic and onto Oils. And now, I am doing both Acrylic Abstracts, which are on display here, and oil landscapes and still life, which some are on display here.
I am a self-taught artist, and I have taken a few classes in drawing, while pursuing my degree from the University of Mary Washington, and have taken a couple of lessons from Ruth Ann Loving and Bill Harris at Liberty Town Art Center.
There are no stories behind my work, as I paint for the sheer enjoyment of it. Besides painting, I play ice hockey, I am the goalie on a team in Richmond, and have been a lifelong Flyers fan, as well as a Eagles and Phillies fan. I am originally from Philadelphia, but left in 1977 when I enlisted in the U.S. Navy, which I remained until my retirement in 2000. I then switched careers, and have worked at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren since 2000.
