“When buying from an artist, you’re purchasing more than just a painting. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You aren’t just buying a thing, you’re buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment in someone’s life. Most importantly, you’re buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about”
My name is Kevin and I am a professional artist living in the UK (Bedfordshire). I sell my unique style of art to collectors all around the world and have been doing this for the last 3 years.
I’ve always had an interest in art and created various forms in one way or another. I’m completely 100% self-taught apart from the odd art lesson during my school years.
Although I enjoyed practical subjects at school, I eventually somehow ended up in I.T. for almost 30 years working for many large corporations. Even though this gave me a comfortable living I was always looking for a route out and the opportunity to work for myself.
I developed my own painting style creating unique original artwork and am now a full time artist.
Most days my head is pumping with new ideas. I rarely have enough time and money to try them all out, despite being up until the small hours of the morning and awake early. It really is full time.
Inspiration generally comes from the inventive side of me. Art is subjective and different people see different things in my art. I’m not an artist who uses profound explanations that people can’t really relate to, I simply paint what I like. I’m intrigued by the colours, patterns and effects my style produces. I look to adapt this to new ideas, and hope other people like it.
From the business side of the art, which is what allows me to do this full time, I’ve learnt an incredible amount. Having been signed to two or the largest UK fine art publishers, I’ve come to realise that I prefer to be in full control of my art. I don’t really believe there is anyone in a better position to market my artwork than me. It allows me to give the best service possible for those choosing to spend their hard earned money on my art, which I continue to appreciate on a daily basis.
