Ken Taylor

After 20 years of the hectic advertising lifestyle, he, and his wife Jean and three children opted for a better quality of life and moved to Llanrhaeadr-Ym-Mochnant, a small village on the Wales/Shropshire border.  Here he began to paint and was encouraged by other professional artists to specialise in miniature paintings.

Ken is entirely self-taught and paints on a black mount board with gouache (an opaque water colour).  Most inspiration comes from the seasonal changes along country lanes around his home.  His work has been sold world-wide and has many collectors.  He has exhibited and sold many pieces of work at several exhibitions including the Hilliard Society of Miniaturists and the royal Academy, London.
