Born and raised in North Sn Diego County, Kene Lohmann grew up painting since early childhood, developing his passion for watercolor. He was privileged to study under noted San Diego County watercolorist, Thelma Speed Houston.
Kene later spent a number of years in Hawaii, where he continued to study, paint and exhibit his works. His colorful landscapes invite the viewer into the painting for a visual escape.
His love of nature and the world around us is captured in his works that dazzle the eye with their intense color palette. “I strive for that emotional reaction connecting the viewer to my work,” states the artist.
Kene’s watercolors are treasure in many private collections throughout the United States and Europe. His watercolors have earned numerous awards in juried shows and exhibitions.
A portion of Kene’s sale are donated to different children’s organizations throughout San Diego County.
