    ARTIST STATEMENT

Operation Art photo of me

Each of these works are are proof of a relationship between Artist and Subject. As I create these scenes I often put myself in the picture (not literally) while drawing with a vision to make it real.

Architectural structures and the landscape that seemed to make them complete are a favorite subject of mine. Preferring to see the beauty in everything… I prefer (when possible) to draw these homes as they are fondly remembered.

I hope you find these works to be new & memorable.
Along with the art, I have included brief statements about each.

Artist Biography for Ken Brown Pioneer

While growing up on a Farm & Ranch near Pioneer, Texas my exposure to the Arts was limited to visiting a T.G.& Y store 50 miles away and reading books. Doing everyday chores in the fresh air and working on the annual Grain Harvest from age 6 to 16 helped me have a great Childhood… and I gained a lasting admiration for the beauty of landscapes and family homes.

I‘ve seen a lot of things and places while working on Farms, Oil fields, Communications Industry, as a Hair Stylist and in Commercial Sales. Today that experience helps me as an Artist. I’m half blind but life helps me create art with a vision. I get creative inspiration in many places: museums, out on the road, in the studios I work in and when talking with others. I sometimes use photographs for reference material but my favorite place to start sketching is outside en plein aire.

As a self-taught Artist I’m fortunate to have been mentored by two great Artists: Evelyn Petroski and Dayne Dudley. They mentored me in art composition and taught me how to engage the viewer.

In addition to creating art… I teach classes at the Tulsa Art Center, Summer Art Camps, and as a Contract Artist at the Philbrook Museum of Art. My current volunteer time includes teaching Veterans at the Coffee Bunker and mentoring annually in Operation Aware’s program for high school art students. I am a member of Alpha Rho Tau – Civic Art Association.

Although I’ve lived near Tulsa, since 1993 I am still a Country Boy… and will always be one.
My Grandmother in Pioneer often said, “Ken, they broke the mold when they made you”.
So in her memory I include Pioneer as part of my Art signature. Please give me a shout if you would like a special piece of art created for your home or office.

Thank you,
– Ken
