Artist Kenneth Fox was born in Bancroft, Iowa, and raised in Algona,
Iowa. In 1960, after serving in the U.S. Air Force, he moved to St. Paul,
Minn., to further his ambition as an artist.
He underwent formal training at the School of Associated Arts. His talents saw no bounds. Mastering in fine arts, he pursued portrait painting in oils and, over the years, became extremely proficient in oils and charcoal mediums. Upon graduation in 1963, Mr. Fox was asked to become a staff teacher for more than 22 years.
Early in his career, Fox began drawing a unique variety of
aircraft and related aviation pieces for the Aviation Art Museum. As the
sole artist for the museum, Fox has completed more than 260 originals, all of
which are maintained by the museum. He also sculpted in clay and plaster molding and became an
expert model builder. He also is a very talented graphic sign painter. Fox also is an accomplished restoration artist who restores prized works
and masterpieces for a major gallery.
Through the AAM, Fox has produced a vast number of private
commissions for individuals, military organizations and corporations.
His diversity has no bounds and classic quality is his trademark. A majority of his work is accomplished from clear and detailed photographs. A variety of backgrounds and foregrounds can be applied to the subject matter at the descretion of the customer.
