Kenneth Vincent comes from a long line of fishermen and farmers who found their homes here on Martha's Vineyard. Having worked so closely with the land and the sea, he has gained a different perspective of life on Martha's Vineyard. When he paints, he sees all these things left in the landscape; the barns, the trees, the fields, the water. And all these places share history, not only with his family over many generations, but with others as well who share their own history of a place.
After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, Vincent returned to Martha's Vineyard and worked for the MV Times, illustrating favorite local places off the beaten track. These overlooked places are the subjects he found most interesting and inspiring-- and have become the foundation of his current body of work.
Kenneth Vincent is represented on Martha's Vineyard by the Granary Gallery at 636 Old County Road, West Tisbury.
