Ken Rasmussen

Ken Rasmussen grew up in Broome, Marble Bar and other Western Australian country towns. He was educated at Scotch College, and attended the University of Western Australia (B.A Literature and one year at Law School.) He subsequently completed a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts at West Australian Institute of Technology (now Curtin University), majoring in painting. Since graduation Ken has painted professionally, gaining a reputation for realist drawing, watercolour and oil painting skills. 

More recently Ken has evolved as a modern realist impressionist painter. Ken Rasmussen is passionate about how places create meaning in people's lives. He draws from his own travels with family to create oil paintings of places that are close to his heart. In Ken's art you'll find holiday stories, the drama of the big city as well as the sacred peaceful places we retreat to. Ken's oil paintings are a window to the memories and experiences that light up our lives and connect us to the people we love most.
