Birmingham born in 1953, Kevin always had a love of art and beauty.
He enjoyed drawing from a young age and later progressed onto creating original paintings using oils during his teens. The genre was portrait busts of family and various luminaries he admired at the time.
However he had an intermission with a career in Civil/Structural Engineering from 1971 through 1995.
After being made redundant from this career, he was very happy to make his dream of becoming a full time Artist come true.
He now feels that he is his true self at last and has enjoyed his new found career meeting so many art lovers along the way.
He has created 100s of original paintings over the years in various genre with commissions from art galleries in the UK and USA, leading to exhibitions and private commissions from art lovers in UK and overseas.
His artwork has been used on merchandise including jigsaw puzzles, CDs, greeting cards, books, calendars, magazines etc. and on Youtube videos.
His artwork has appeared in numerous press articles over the years and he is very grateful for this coverage.
His original art can be found in private collections in UK and overseas.
