Kenneth Jack AM MBE RWS, (5 October 1924–10 June 2006) was an Australian watercolour artist who specialised in painting the images of an almost forgotten outback life: old mine workings, ghost towns, decaying farm buildings. He became a professional painter at the age of 39 after giving up his job as senior instructor at the Caulfield Institute of Technology. In 1977 he was elected to The Royal Watercolour Society. In 1982 he was awarded the MBE, and the Order of Australia (AM) followed in 1987. He continued as a prolific painter and printmaker until his death in June 2006.
