Born in London, Ontario, Kevin is a self-taught pencil artist who now resides on Quadra Island, located off the northeast coast of Vancouver Island. He retired from a career in the Canadian Forces that took him to every corner of the world, but it is here on the West Coast of Canada that Kevin finds the inspiration for his works of art. He strives to create photo-realistic detail in his pieces by relying on texture and tonal values of the subjects. Kevin is a proud member of Society of Animal Artists, Artists for Conservation and enjoys giving back to nature whenever possible. Most recently Kevin has been juried in as a 2016 Ducks Unlimited National Art Portfolio Member. Kevin, an avid photographer and kayaker, hopes to convey his deep appreciation for the beauty of the natural world around him through his art.
Ducks Unlimited has always been a special organization to me since i was a little boy. As i grew in age and as an artist it became even more important to me. I realized the work they do and all the benefits that come from money raised through their organization. Well.... I am very excited to be able to share some exciting news with you! I am honoured to have been chosen as a 2016 Ducks Unlimited National Art Portfolio Artist. :) Thank-you very much to my family, friends and now Ducks Unlimited for all your support. I couldnt be happier!
