Kenneth was raised at the family home on the Isle of Wight at Woodcliff in the village of St Lawrence, and later studied art at the Slade School in London. He returned to live on the island and later settled in Ryde, though little is known about his early life. He would paint and record many ships, of all sizes, in the surrounding waters and is particularly known for expansive views of Portsmouth Harbour painted in the 1950s and early 1960s. Yockney avoided any publicity and never signed his work, selling his paintings locally and also through the Portsmouth art dealer Percy Beer. He died at St Mary’s Hospital, Newport in 1965 aged 83.
