Artist Ken Burton

Born in Peterborough in 1946, Ken Burton’s interest in art began at school, leading to an initial career in design and engraving. Subsequently entering public service, Ken finally ‘retired’ in 1985 and settled down to his real vocation – capturing the beauty of the countryside in watercolour. He says he “has never worked so hard in his life”.

Increasingly sought after, his works may be found in leading galleries throughout the United Kingdom, and are represented in many private collections both at home and abroad, particularly in the United States.
