After returning home in his post college days, KP was a professional sports artist for Sports Legacy Art Galleries in Houston, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, and Arlington. While establishing roots in the local art community, Kenneth has performed live visual art at events like Float Fest, the Kerrville Chalk Festival, Houston Via Colori, and MidtownHOU Chalk on the Block over the past two decades. Kenneth has also shown his fine art in group shows at accessible venues like the House of Blues, the Hardy & Nance Studios, Morton Street Art Gallery, War’Hous, and the Starving Artist Gallery.
Kenneth finds his inspiration quite simply in the nuances of humanity, music, and culture.

His fine art often includes realistic drawings of the human form with splashes of color in acrylic paint.
