About the Artist

Born in November 1965 in the city of Southampton, Kevin spent his early life being educated in various schools across the city. Growing up he wanted to be a special effects designer, and was told he needed an art degree. During his second year at Leicester Polytechnic Kevin discovered the art of printmaking, and became fascinated by the process. With a very analytical mind Kevin adopted these techniques with ease, and under the guidance of his tutors, Roy Bizley and Mike Hale, he honed in on his talents and became the artist we know today.
