Ken Rowe was born and raised in
Arizona. As a young boy, he was known to express himself through various art mediums, such as drawing, painting and
sculpting. An avid outdoorsman, Ken has devoted his life to combining his
vocation with his avocation through a career in wildlife art.
At the age of 26, Ken opened his own wildlife art studio where he sculpted life-sized mannequins as a taxidermist. Over the past 15 years Ken submerged himself in a business that demanded an intense study of anatomy, composition
and wildlife physiology. Ken believes that
this in-depth knowledge is an extremely important quality for a wildlife artist.
For the past 11 years Ken has expanded his talents into the creation of bronze sculpture. These bronzes depict Kens tremendous respect for wildlife along with the legendary cowboys, bucking broncos and
historic Native Americans of the southwest. Ken's bronzes are in many private and
corporate collections throughout the United States and foreign countries.
"To me, art is much more than finite
detail. It is accuracy of the subject, story lines, and the culmination of strength, texture
and balance. In the visual sense, when one views my art, he or she should be able to
feel the rugged beauty of the southwest and the vitality and diversity of its people."
