Ken Bucklew

Biography from the Archives of askART

Born in 1957, Ken Bucklew is a traditional painter of wild and scenic Southern Indiana.  He has been greatly influenced by earlier Indiana artists such as J. Ottis Adams, Adolf Shulz and T.C. Steele, whose paintings captured the essence and character of the Indiana landscape a century ago.  "I'm following in their tradition, self-taught by studying their techniques and through lifelong, patient observation of the natural world."

Following high school graduation, in 1975, he was totally paralyzed in a diving accident and has since recovered to produce his best work with limited feeling and movement in his hands.  Since 1980, he has worked full time as a professional artist having work published on a wide variety of products including fine art prints, conservation stamps, greeting cards, calendars and books.  His original paintings are displayed in many private and corporate collections and at his studio located across from the entrance to McCormick's Creek State Park in Owen County, Indiana.
