Neale Worley RP NEAC
Neale studied at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts before attending the Royal
Academy Schools where he was tutored by Ken Howard.
Now a successful artist, Neale has always kept in contact with his mentor and devised
the idea of creating this documentary about Ken. The filming was, therefore, relaxed
and informal. Ken and Dora were kind hosts in their homes and Ken gave unrestricted
access while he worked both in his studios and outside.
Dave trained with the BBC in broadcast sound and worked for many years as a technical
operator before becoming a broadcaster and presenter. He now works freelance and
runs an independent video production company.
Dave spent many hours chatting to Ken on camera. Ken’s responses provide the commentary
for this documentary. Dave and Neale both worked on the post production, allowing
Ken’s story to be told with no editorial input. The desire was a portrait of the
real Ken Howard.

About the Producers
Professor Ken Howard OBE RA is a successful painter who has never followed trends
or allowed the critics to influence him.
His art reflects the world the way he sees it and his considerable skill at depicting
light has become his language. His paintings are on the walls of many public and
private collections worldwide.
How does an artist who developed his style in the 1950s and refused to follow the
changing fashions in painting over the succeeding decades manage to stay popular
In ‘The Way I See It’ he gives a frank and honest appraisal of his life as one of
the Royal Academy’s most successful artists.
