Ken Danby was born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario in 1940. When he was ten years old he informed his parents that he wanted to become an artist, and that a guidance teacher had advised him of a school called the Ontario College of Art, where he could study. He enrolled there in 1958.
He quit the college two years later with a belief that for him, it was the right decision. He grew quickly as an artist and supported himself through hard work and perseverance.
In 1963, after having returned to a representational focus in his work, and in need of some reinforcement of his convictions in this regard, Danby arranged to review his work with gallery owner, Walter Moos, of Toronto. Moos was positive and supportive when his keen eye recognized the artist's exceptional abilities. In 1964, Gallery Moos presented Danby’s first one-man show, which promptly sold out and set an example that was repeated and surpassed over many years.
The recipient of many awards and honors, Ken Danby responded to his personal experiences with unique and creative dedication.
