Details

Kevin was born in 1956 in Workington, where he still lives.

He started drawing at the age of three. Started selling paintings at 11 years old, and won his first mural and interior design contracts at the age of 14.

He studied at Carlisle College of Art & Design, and trained further as a graphic designer. He worked on hundreds of large and international advertising campaigns during the seventies. If you were alive then you will have seen Kevin’s work.

Although he followed work into civil engineering, construction, archaeology, and forensic science, he has continued to be a professional artist all his working life.

He became a self-employed full time professional in 1997.

Kevin is a working artist. He has only ever worked on commissioned pieces and designs. This is his second only ever exhibition.

This is a rare opportunity to see a collection of his work exhibited together outside private ownership.

He works in all mediums, subject matters, and styles, He understands that the commissioned piece dictates the style, though prefers classic realism to interpretive contemporary styles.

With numerous celebrity portrait commissions from, Alan & Heather Aykborn,Clint Eastwood, Johnny Depp, John Wayne, Sevi Ballisteros, Bjon Borg, Damon Hill, Ayrton Senna, Matt Busby, Ray Mears and many more.

His works are included in some of the largest private collections in the UK. With works recently hung alongside David Hockney , and valuations by Bonhams of London .
If he has a specialty it is the creation of large murals a skill he has honed since his early teens, the largest to date being 164m wide.

He has run his own weekly painting and drawing classes for over 25 years, and enjoys holding workshop days or weeks, with a very relaxed and fun atmosphere.

This current exhibition is inspired by the Cumbria ..his home.
