|Description of your art form|
Kevin was born in Montreal, spent his teen years in Nova Scotia. He moved to Vancouver in 1977, settling in Victoria in 1980. Kevin graduated from Saint FX University and UVic. Thirty-five years as a child psychotherapist taught him the power of art as a vehicle for self-expression, storytelling and healing.
While being an avid photographer, Kevin also discovered the world of watercolour, acrylic, pencil/charcoal and Photoshop. He has studied under Ken Campbell, Joanne Thomson, Dixie MacUisdin, Tony Bounsall, and internationally renowned digital artist Maggie Taylor.
He co-facilitates the Creative Photography Group for the Victoria Camera Club and has entered his images in “Creative” competitions in the Photographic Society of America where he received Awards of Merit in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
Kevin has found the visual arts and especially digital collage provide a very potent vehicle for self-expression. All objects in his digital images are his own photographs or creations. Computer software (photoshop) is used to edit/transform each object and the entire image.
Kevin believes art is not only designed for the viewer, but also reveals and impacts the artist’s personal understanding. Increasingly so he recognizes the importance of honouring the practice of art in and of itself. Is there also a broader context that is “channeled” through the artist? . . . Maybe!
