Kacey Ferguson was born in Manchester, Jamaica. He received his early education at Kingston College. A self-taught artist, Kacey Ferguson is described by many as a “landscape master”. His love of the beauty of nature is at the heart of his determination to reproduce on canvas his aesthetic vision of that which is pure. His paintings depict pastoral settings where nature is at its most serene.
He has participated in numerous group exhibitions both locally and internationally, since 1995 and held one solo exhibition in 1998. In 1998 he received a silver medal in the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission exhibition, and in 1999 he was awarded the prestigious Government of Jamaica National Youth Award for Excellence in the field of Art.
In 2002, his painting of Hope Gardens in Kingston, depicting an earthly paradise, was presented to the Duke of Edinburgh as a gift from the Jamaica National Environment Trust. His paintings have been featured as cover images for two books – “The Damp in Things” and “I Woman”, both published in 2009.
