Bio.

INSPIRED BY LIFE.

In 1982 Kevin spent two years at Art College studying Technical illustration specialising in human form followed by two years studying Advertising Graphics.

In 1986 Kevin completed his studies which unfortunately coincided with one of the country’s worst industrial disputes between the National Union of Miners and the UK Government. Living in a mining village at the time work was scarce with limited options and subsequently Kevin started working in his family’s building firm. A few years later Kevin returned to College to study Information Technology. His plan was to study I.T. to understand and use computers and be able to create computer graphics. As a career, computer graphics was in its infancy and his plan didn’t come to fruition.

Kevin had a successful and financially rewarding career in I.T. ultimately working as a principal consultant for a number of well-known international brands. On course for early retirement and plans to fully immerse himself in art once more, Kevin’s world was turned upside down in 2005 as a result of an acrimonious divorce.

In the ensuing years working as a photographer and a single parent Kevin faced many challenges but has always been an artist at his core. Constantly learning his craft regardless of circumstance. He loves to study old and new techniques, traditional and digital, continually striving to learn techniques from the old masters and apply their methods and teachings in his artwork.

Artist’s Statement

Artists Statment.

ART IS INTRINSIC. ART IS HUMAN.

I am a figurative and portrait artist captivated by the beauty of the human form. I love to blur the boundaries between realism and idealism. I consider myself a realist artist who portrays my subjects as they appear in life but in their best possible light. With each new artwork, I find myself challenged technically, not only as an artist but as a storyteller too.

Over the years my love for great art and design had enabled me to focus my love of learning new skills and knowledge. From creating digital 3D models and music videos to Web design and special effects this rich tapestry of experience is now my creative foundation.

Predominantly a digital artist I explore and embrace the techniques used by old masters to capture my subjects. I work from life and use photo reference where necessary utilising my many years working as a photographer. Layering opaque colours or glazes and blending as you would oils but in a digital medium gives it hard to distinguish results from real-world paints.

As a portrait and figurative painter I feel it is necessary to not only capture a likeness but to engage the viewer in ways that cannot be accomplished with a photograph or other mediums.
