Originally from London, Ontario, Kevin’s boyhood pursuits included sports, the outdoors and capturing his world in drawings and pictures. After graduating from high school, Kevin traveled the world with the Canadian Armed Forces. He touched down in many lands such as Italy, England, Africa, Cyprus, Pakistan and Germany to name a few.
Throughout his life, Kevin has created art using many different mediums–oils, acrylics, watercolours, pastels and pencil. He tried his hand at airbrushing onto many different surfaces including fabric, illustration board and metal. While stationed at Canadian Forces Base Trenton, Ontario Kevin ran a custom airbrushing business and taught airbrushing techniques through the Loyalist College.
An auspicious posting to CFB Comox, British Columbia brought together the perfect elements for Kevin’s developing skills: an emerging love of wildlife art and the natural rugged beauty of the West Coast. It is here where nature’s splendour has become the inspiration for many of his works of art.
Being self-taught took many long hours sitting at his drawing board and has lead to his newfound appreciation of this lifelong learning process. As a dedicated pencil artist, Kevin has always loved the freedom, simplicity and range of the pencil medium. He strives to create photo realistic detail in his pieces. This is accomplished in the total absence of colour by relying on the texture and tonal values of the subjects.
Retired from the Forces, Kevin now resides on beautiful Quadra Island, located on the north east coast of Vancouver Island. Kevin, an avid photographer and kayaker, hopes to convey his deep appreciation for the beauty of the natural world around him through his art.

 
Support for Conservation:
It was my honor to be included as One of Fifty artists that took part in "Canada’s Raincoast At Risk: Art for an Oil-Free Coast".

It was a project funded by the "Raincoast Conservation Foundation" and was organized by renowned artist Mark Hobson. This project gave artists a means in which to voice our concern about a potential oil disaster on Canada's West Coast. Artists took up Pencils, Paint, Sculpting tools and Voices to create awareness about the problems associated with Enbridge's Northern Gateway Pipeline bringing very large oil tankers into the pristine, untouched lands of Canada's Great Bear Rain-forest.
