About Kevin

Kevin T was born and raised in the Detroit metropolitan area. As a child he loved comics and knew he wanted to be an artist. When Kevin attended college there were not degree programs in sequential art so he studied fine arts and illustration. He earned his BFA from the Center for Creative Studies (AKA College for Creative Studies) in Detroit, Michigan. Later he graduated from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2010 with his MFA in studio painting.

Currently Kevin is instructing in the Graphic Design department at the Art Institute of Sacramento. He completed his B.F.A. in painting at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit. Kevin relocated to California and apprenticed with Italian Fine Artist, Roberto Lupetti in Carmel. Lupetti encouraged Kevin to explore color and keep his brushstroke active
Trained in traditional painting techniques,

Kevin has worked in both representational and modern abstraction. His interest in art is to achieve catharsis of thought and emotion. His driving motivation is to forge a deep connection with art and to educate others on the strong connection between art and life. Art and Design are not static but needs to look and feel as if it has a life of its own.

Kevin continues to make art an important part of his life. His belief is that “Art is a series of echoes from the soul” and his work seeks to be understood as pieces that are grown from both the emotion and analytical minds.

Kevin’s industry related experience includes positions such as Art Director, Fine Artist, Production Artist, Graphics Artist, Webmaster, Illustrator, Painting Instructor, Drawing Instructor, Graphic Design Instructor and Adobe Software Workshops Instructor.

Kevin has exhibited in the Sacramento region since 2005. He currently is a resident artist at the Kennedy Gallery in Sacramento. He began teaching art and graphic design classes in 2010. Currently he teaches at the Art Institute Sacramento.
