Kevin was born in Brisbane, Queensland but raised at the Gold Coast.
After graduating from Year 12 he worked as a commercial artist for the Gold Coast Bulletin before joining the Royal Australian Air Force until he retired in 1997 after 20 years service.
Upon retirement from the Air Force he opened his Graphic Design business in Hervey Bay. Within 18 months he had 48 Offices across Australia, New Zealand and Europe. He sold the business in 2004 and retired yet again to travel around Australia photographing and painting the eclectic corners the country had to offer.
Kevin and his wife Jeanette have lived in every State and Territory of Australia and spent six years in Asia studying art in Singapore.
He now lives in Howard after living for 8 years in the remote village of Daly Waters in the Northern Territory, Australia and spends all his days drawing and painting and experimenting with mixed media and techniques. He recently ceased full time contribution to Artist’s Palette magazine to concentrate on his fine art in more detail.
