Essence of the West Coast
Ken Skoda was born in Calgary, Canada in 1961 and started painting in oil at the age of 18. Currently residing in Britannia Beach, Canada, Ken draws inspiration from the water, the mountains and the wildlife in British Columbia’s breathtaking landscapes. Known for his colorful works, Ken’s canvases and murals provide vibrant representations of the symbiotic life between plants and animals.
Mentored by Kurt Han in Calgary, Ken has garnered many awards throughout his career.
He won the Calgary Real Estate Board’s art competition in 1991 with a submission that was sold at a Calgary Stampede art auction. In 1996, the Bradford Exchange produced a 4-plate orca panorama of one of Ken’s paintings. Ken painted another orca in October 2004 for an auction that benefited Canucks for Kids, a Vancouver-based non-profit organization.
