He completed a fine arts studio diploma program from UCFV Abbotsford in British Columbia and has taken classes in art history, archaeology, anthropology and native studies at the University of Saskatchewan. His uncle, Saskatchewan artist Jerry Whitehead was an early inspiration to Kevin, and helped him begin his artistic career. His art frequently depicts maternal and floral motifs and emphasizes the importance of family, tradition, and respect for aboriginal culture and heritage. Kevin has worked on collaborative mural projects with various schools throughout Saskatchewan.1,2
