We invite you to browse the site and enjoy the many different pieces that Ken has created through the years.
Ken Schmidt is a full-time artist from upstate New York. Working mainly in watercolors and pencil, Ken has developed his own unique style portraying the Native American, the mountain man, and the cowboy. Ken travels the country photographing live models and scenery which he uses as the subjects and settings for his paintings and drawings.
Ken's work has been featured on the
covers of nationally known magazines such as "Art of the West",
"Midwest Art", and "Wild West." Recently, his artwork
has captured a more international audience, and has been shown in Europe.
Ken's personal attention to detail and realism breathe life into his paintings allowing collectors to feel and experience the rugged existence which his subjects have endured. "When I paint, I'm communicating with the subjects, putting their thoughts into the portrait. It's almost like they're telling me what they've done in their lives. I get lost, drawn into the paintings, just like I hope people who look at them do."
