Kevin Hughes_SELF 879x1035I grew up with a love for all types of creative arts. My first paintings were in the 1970’s done with a local professional artist. Later on I took various Painting classes at BSU as well as Plein Air classes from Fred Choate.

Workshops from professional artist have helped shape my skills:

John Cosby, Doug Braithwaite, Robert Moore, Antonin Passemard, and others.

I was introduced to Plein Air painting in Sonoma, California in 2002 and have practice it ever since. In recent years I have been painting many Plein Air landscape paintings, portraits, figures, as well as still life. I appreciate traditional realistic painting but also like a more contemporary style.

My long career as a traditional Draftsman and a CAD Draftsman have influenced my work greatly. In recent years I have built from scratch most of my own picture frames for my work. Always trying out different styles and finishes along the way.
