Framed original gouache watercolour detailed miniature painting of Powis Castle, Powys, Wales. Signed in the lower right corner by the artist, Ken Taylor.

Ken Taylor was born in 1939, in Liverpool. Educated at Holt High School. He trained as a graphic designer and worked in advertising agencies in Liverpool until 1977.
After 20 years of the hectic advertising lifestyle, he and his wife, Jean and three children opted for better quality of life and moved to a small village on the Wales/Shropshire border, near Oswestry. Here he began to paint and was encouraged by other professional artists to specialise in miniature paintings. Ken is entirely self-taught and paints on a black mount board with gouache (an opaque watercolour). Most inspiration comes from the seasonal changes along country lanes around his home.
Ken Taylor’s work has been sold worldwide and has many collectors. He has exhibited and sold many pieces of work at several exhibitions including the Hilliard Society of Miniaturists and the Royal Academy, London.
