About Kenneth Cobb

 
 
  • Biography
    I live and work in the Northern Tier Region of Pennsylvania. I have been creating art as long as I can remember and found 2-D media the most enjoyable, especially oil painting.  The genres I work with include the figure narrative, landscape, and still life.  Being traditionally trained in painting techniques, I find the entire process of idea development to technical follow through quite satisfying and a continual learning experience with endless options to explore. I believe the key is to not conform to any one approach in painting but to always challenge the medium to discover new possibilities.
