Kevin was raised and schooled in Leominster and later lived in Boston for 32 years. For 20 of those years he resided in a large building called The Chickering Piano Factory which was a multi-cultural, mixed-income community for approximately 200 artists. He exhibited his work in their beautiful gallery several times in addition to several exhibits at The South End Public Library and Boston University. In the past few years Kevin returned to Leominster renewing his interest in his artwork even further than before. He has found the art community here to be very welcoming and encouraging. He was accepted into three exhibits in 2009 at the Fitchburg Art Museum - "Art in Bloom", "Snap and shoot" (a photograph exhibit) and had a large painting of The Stone House accepted for the Fitchburg Regional Art Museum. That was a lifelong dream. Kevin has exhibited at the Leominster Art Association Annual Art Exhibit for several years. As a member he has taken part in their art sales at The Public Library. One of Kevin's photographs was awarded the Mayor's Award at the 2010 Leominster Art Association Annual Exhibit. Recently Kevin was awarded two ribbons for the same paining entitled "Stranger on a Bench". At the Leominster Art Association he was awarded the Second Prize ribbon in the Amateur category. Then just a few weeks later his same painting was awarded an Honorable Mention Ribbon at The Princeton Annual Art Exhibit. Only 28 ribbons were awarded at the Princeton Exhibit out of over 300 pieces of artwork. His works represent oil painting, watercolor, pastel, needlepoint, sculpture and photography. He recently took part in the benefit/auction to raise funds to renovate the Arc Clubhouse for the Mentally Disabled. His painted chair which he created sold for over $150. Kevin is a member of the Leominster Art Center in downtown Leominster.
