This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Kenn Backhaus was born in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, and spent much of his childhood on the family farm near Burnett, Wisconsin. His fondness for nature became the catalyst for his art. Kenn's parents encouraged his artistic education and following High School, he attended Layton School of Art in Milwaukee.

After graduation from Layton in 1973, he embarked on his professional career in Design and Illustration. As a commercial designer and illustrator Kenn received many awards at both local and national levels, which included acceptance in the Annual Society of Illustrators Show in New York. Although Kenn took pride in his commercial successes, his heart always belonged to the fine art of outdoor painting.

With developing interest in the historic Plein Air style of painting, Kenn decided in 1984, to devote more time to his passion for painting and the love of the outdoors. He found that capturing true color, value and the mood of a subject was best done on location or through direct observation. His passion for painting has broadened his subject matter to include not only landscape, but also figurative, portrait, still life and wildlife.

Kenn's works have been juried into many shows across the country, including the Oil Painters of America National Shows. His works have received many awards including an Award of Excellence in the 1998 Regional Oil Painters of America Show and a Best of Show in the 1999 Invitational American Plains Artist Show in Midland, Texas.

Kenn is a Signature Member, and the current President of the Plein-Air Painters of America. He is also a Signature Member of the Oil Painters of America.

Kenn also has strong feelings about giving back to this profession and is involved in many artist workshops across the country.
