Luce Artist Biography

With a playful and complex personality to match his artwork, Ken Bova has made a living preaching the virtues of creativity. He carries in his wallet a list of nine goals that keep him focused on his priorities: “have fun; make money; provide for the future; contribute to my field; meet new people; travel; have leisure time; learn; and teach.” He spends much of his time with this last goal, organizing numerous jewelry workshops around the country for people of all ages.
