Ken Waldvogel is a native of Eureka, California, who began making art in middle school. Ken joined the Studio in 2008, about one year after graduating high school.

Ken views himself as an artist who is interested in developing his talents and increasing his visibility in the local art community.

"Creating art is a positive outlet for the emotional struggle that comes with having a disability. My creativity sustains me. Making art allows me to express myself."

"By continually pushing myself to try new methods of creating art, I am able to stay fresh and excited about my artwork. This is how I sustain my creativity and in turn my creativity sustains me."
