Sara Sue McNeill Irish Artist, Ladybird Studio, 49 Warren Road, Donaghadee, BT21 OPQ Northern Ireland.


Primarily a landscape painter in the romantic tradition, Kenneth’s subjects of bog-scapes, sea scapes, and wild flower meadows have been truly original contributions to Irish art over the past 50 years. He evokes a Gallic sense of mystery and mood in his expressionist water lily and bog paintings of Connemara.

A fascination with nature has gripped Kenneth since childhood and his best work captures the sacredness of flower, forest and bog. In recent years his original use of colour had influenced many of his contemporaries.

Kenneth has said "I would wish to paint a picture which has the ability to move me as does music; to turn the heart, not merely an impeccable example of craftsmanship." To this end he uses dramatic design and primary colour for emotional effect.

Born in London in 1927, Kenneth served in the Royal Navy and Fleet Air Arm, and was appointed Head of the Painting School in the Ulster College of Art at the young age of 26. In his twenties and thirties he exhibited widely in London, Paris, Washington D.C., Boston, Toronto, Jersey, and Ireland. Being reclusive by nature, and actively shunning the limelight, he has been happy for the past 50 years to confine his shows to Ireland where he has sold almost everything he has produced. He has recently begun exhibiting in London again and is currently preparing for a big show there in the New Year.
