Ken Gillam Marine and Landscape Artist
Born in Hampshire, after completing his education, in which art did not feature a great deal, he entered the banking profession. During this time he became an accomplished dinghy sailor later becoming both the National and Inland Champion, experiences that would later stand him in good stead for his favourite artistic subject the sea. After a career in banking, he then spent some time working in the charitable sector.
He has participated in a number of group exhibitions with his second one man show in the summer of 2005. Working mostly in watercolour and also in acrylic. He favours maritime and coastal scenes, but also produces outstanding landscapes. He says that watercolour is a challenging medium, but when it all comes together, can produce a seascape in which you can almost taste the salt spray.
A self taught artist and runner up in the recent prestigious Artist Choice Awards in both large and small seascape categories, with over 150 original paintings in collections in both UK, Europe, Canada and USA, my love of the sea and countryside id reflected in my work.
