I am an award winning abstract artist working primarily in acrylics but I also work with watercolors, pastels, oils and two dimensional mixed-media. The majority of my current work is abstract. Influenced primarily by my father, Bob Kevin, an award winning artist in his own right, I have had a lifelong passion for all forms of creativity and have also produced pottery pieces, stained glass and sculptures.

I love color and texture in art so I use a lot of both of them in my paintings. I create abstract art because of the free flowing and limitless potential of what the results can be at the end of my work. I can use any colors, design, thoughts, and feelings and let them flow onto the canvas and keep moving with the painting as it evolves. It is fun and exciting to create paintings like this with no limits or boundaries. It really is a liberating experience to go with the flow and not try to control it just enjoys what you see and make it better as I go along until the painting is completed in my mind. I’m often surprised at the diverse results that end up on the canvas as I allow my imagination to guide the creative process. Working primarily with acrylics I enjoy exploring the relationship of colors to one another and how adding texture to the canvas, using paint or materials, changes that relationship. I also employ geometric designs in many of my pieces exploring the special relationships created by various figures, objects and symbols.
