Ken was born in Bolton in 1921 and studied fine art at Bolton Art College. With the outbreak of World War II, he found himself serving in the Royal Corps of Signals of the British Army. During this time he continued to paint as a way to supplement his army pay. It was also during this period that he built the first model of the Perfect Paper Stretcher. Following the war, Ken moved to London and worked on commercial art projects, but returned to Bolton around 1948. Through the 50s and 60s, he specialised in sketches for schools, churches and universities. In the mid 1970s, through the Bromley Art company, Ken produced sketches and watercolours depicting local views from around the country. It is from this period between 1975-1990 that most of the artworks featured in this gallery originate. http://www.artsupplies.co.uk/kbgallery.php" rel="nofollow">Ken Bromley Gallery
