Was born in St. Louis and grew up in Japan, Thailand, and Greece. He returned to the United States to live in Washington D.C. and Chicago and now lives and works in New Mexico. At the age of 18, Kevin entered The American Academy of Art in Chicago, IL. After completing his training there, he began his private study with the master painter, Eugene Hall, until Hall's death in 1985.
Kevin traces his artistic lineage from Eugene Hall, who was the protege of the master painter, Vladimir Zlatoff-Mirsky, who in turn studied in Moscow under Russia's great famous painter Ilya Repin. To this day, Kevin paints on the original easel handed down to him through these painters.
