Ken Gillespie SFCA

Photo of Ken Gillespie SFCABorn in Vancouver in 1948, Ken Gillespie has always lived in western Canada. He spent most of his life in Calgary but moved to the Okanagan in 2000.

He has even done some traveling to other countries now that his daughters have shown him how. He recently met them in Nepal where they trekked around the foothills of the highest mountains in the world. He also enjoys kayaking and hiking around the west coast of British Columbia. He started putting the images of the Canadian landscape to canvas at the age of forty, and a few years later left a successful career in the geophysical sector to pursue art full time. This change has met with much success, including sell out shows in recent years.

In 1996 he achieved senior status with the Federation of Canadian Artists. His work hangs in public, corporate and private collections world wide. He now shows in galleries in Alberta and British Columbia. Ken's artwork has been in many publications including International Artists magazine in their "Master Painters of the World" section.

"My artwork is about colour, shape and texture, but above all an expression of beauty.Subject becoming less relevant, each painting having a life of its own, each stroke leading to the next. It is more about the connection of the spirit to the body to the canvas, above mind or intellect to canvas."
