Ken Lonechild

Ken Lonechild

Ken Lonechild was born in 1960 on the White Bear First Nation, near Carlyle, southeast Saskatchewan. He was the brother of renowned painters Michael Lonechild (born 1955), John Lonechild (1962-2020) and Ivan Lonechild (born 1953).

Like his brothers, Ken was a self-taught artist. He painted in acrylics, fondly depicting his boyhood life on the reserve -- in many of his paintings a boy can be seen observing or tagging along as adults work or socialize. Favourite scenes include hunting, fishing, logging, gathering wood, and returning or setting out on expeditions.

Ken Lonechild’s work can be found in many corporate and public collections throughout Canada, and in the USA and Europe.

Ken Lonechild died in November 2017, in Calgary, Alberta
