Kenneth DinkelBiography: Born in New Rochelle, N.Y. in 1957, Kenneth Dinkel spent his early years in Larchmont, New Rochelle, Rye and finally settling with his family in Armonk, N.Y. in 1969. Ken Graduated Byram Hills High School where he was a champion swimmer and co/founder of their Swim Team. After two years at Ithaca College setting records in the 50 and 100yd.freestyle events and achieving All State Honors, he went on to establish Mr. Goodstrip, a refinishing company now in its 31st year. Ken can pinpoint the moment he knew he wanted to become an artist. In 1998 on a trip to Maine, Ken came upon a tall thin man painting a pear in a Keenebunkport gallery. This man Val McGann, welcomed ken into the art world with sage advice that proved critical: " once you develop your skill, you will know you have it after about one hundred works." For the next eight years ken spent every free moment honing and developing his skills as a artist. As an artist, growth is essential and nothing excites me more than the exploration of color, which I experiences in different forms. My work is vivid, showing a great deal of movement. My landscapes, often including water, require much patience but are extremely rewarding, while the abstract work proves an opportunity for me to improvise and be free. Ken is studying with Alan Reingold, one of Americas who's who of Illustrators and professor at The Parsons School Of Design, in Greenwich Village, N.Y. Alan insists that "Ken is the next cutting edge artist". Dinkel's paintings have been purchased by private collectors: Ron Howard, Bernie Williams, Dan DiSano C.E.O.
