ABOUT THE ARTIST

Return to Table of Contents

 

Born in the heavily wooded Pocono Mountain area of Pennsylvania, Kenneth attended Wilkes College where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Biology. After moving to New York 45 years ago, Kenneth earned a Master's Degree from Union College in Schenectady.

Kenneth resides with his wife of 45 years in a home they built about 27years ago.

Although Kenneth's father was a professional woodworker (patternmaker and cabinetmaker), Kenneth earned his living teaching chemistry (now retired).  Kenneth's woodworking activities started in the cellar of his home as a form of relaxation. Although current demand for his wood creations has Kenneth spending more time on his hobby, each item is still created personally by Kenneth for the pleasure of working in wood at a hobby which still brings needed relaxation.

Kenneth is a member of the American Association of Woodturners and the Northeastern Woodworkers Association, and the Adirondack Woodturners Association.   Kenneth demonstrates woodturning to interested groups, teaches woodturning, and has had articles published related to woodturning. 

Kenneth is the General Chairman of Woodworkers Showcase and is involved with Totally Turning Woodworking Symposium.

Kenneth's work can  be seen and purchased through   Valley Artisans Market in Cambridge,  N.Y.
