During lockdown, Ken re-kindled his interest in art, putting brush to canvas on a daily basis where he would paint pieces from photographs taken on his travels. Alongside his own art, Ken started buying and selling many pieces of art that he has personally connected with from all over the British Isles, Europe and beyond.

UlsterArt is a showcase of Ken's collection where you can share his apprecation for art with the opportunity to own a piece of this original, diverse collection.

Please enjoy the collection!
