Ken Flett is a Nova Scotia based artist and teacher. Hailing from Vancouver Island, Ken spent his formative years on the Island. Ken’s connection to Victoria has always been strongly tied to his artwork. Ken was represented by the Fran Willis Gallery and taught workshops at the Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts and the Victoria College of Art. Ken’s artwork can be found in the University of Victoria Legacy Art Collection and the Camosun College Art Collection.
Regardless of the medium, Ken’s work focuses on themes of love, memory, hope, and loss. He is most interested in making the invisible visible through his art and in doing so honour the stories that would otherwise be lost and forgotten. Ken’s exploration of the art form of puppetry is where he brings together all aspects of his creative practice to consider storytelling anew through this complex medium.
