Kenneth Ian Husbands works have been displayed throughout the USA. Kenneth's artwork has
appeared in various online/print publications. Kenned belongs to national art groups such as The
Sheboygan Visual Artists and the Plymouth arts center as well as New York groups Such as the South
bay arts association the Brookhaven Arts and humanities council and The new millennium modern art
group. Kenneth had studied art in NY at a local college before his financial situation made him drop
out and become a long shore commercial fisherman. After not painting for 6 years he found the art
calling him back. Putting all of his energy back into art he found the concept of letting go of controlling
his art  to be appealing, and started experimenting in a aesthetic way to make that happen. The
paintings on display are all examples of his "letting go of control" as well as different emotions he puts
onto the canvas
