Artist's Biography

Kevin Whitford did not know how to draw when he first came to prison. Kevin likes the challenge of trying new things. One day he saw another inmate drawing adn decided to try it too. To his surprise he found he had some natural talent. Kevin learned some basics from others, but mostly taught himself through trial and error. He most often draws traditional First Nations works or portraits. His work with First Nations symbols focus on various teachings. He has also designed tattoos and has tried some airbrushing. Kevin finds joy in creating things for others' enjoyment, and as such works mostly for commission. When he is released Kevin hopes to use his artistic skills in a career.
