(b. 1964) Michael Kennaugh received his B.F.A. from Lamar in 1986 and his M.F.A. from the University of North Texas in 1990. Kennaugh is known for abstract paintings, drawings and painted wood assemblages and sculptures.

Kennaugh's paintings have a lyrical, spontaneous quality about them, which makes it surprising to learn that the works are carefully planned with meticulous drawings and explorations of color. The paintings are not direct copies of the drawings, however. As Kennaugh paints, the curved lines and muted colors evolve during the process to become something fresh and different.

Kennaugh’s work is included in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Art Museum of Southeast Texas in Beaumont and in corporate collections both national and international.
