Kenneth Houghton Ober was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts on February 22, 1972. Kenneth's creative abilities began to surface in elementary school and became his focus by high school. Through the guidance of an excellent teacher he was encouraged to explore all forms of media, and was instilled with the capacity to invoke his imagination.
Kenneth studied Art, Art History, and Literature at the University of Maryland for two years. The various cultures, religions, and art forms of Asia served as an introduction to Buddhist philosophy, which led him to Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado.
The desire to connect to a broader art world brought Kenneth to California, where he graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in 2001. Since then, he has lived and worked as an independent, professional artist. His current series of paintings, made with an automobile pin-striping tool, have been exhibited both nationally and internationally.
Large, commissioned originals of Kenneth's work are currently hanging in numerous, well-known resorts and medical centers.
Kenneth relocated to Bisbee, AZ in 2020 hoping to find a more relaxed pace of life.
