Kevin Grummett was born in 1965. He took various courses in university and realized his interest in art relatively late. Kevin feels he is working himself up from the level of illustrator to that of an artist, who can bring “a certain Gestalt where emotion, idea, and concept reinforce each other to facilitate multiple interpretation. He has a series of pastoral paintings that celebrate his connectedness with his rural background, and another of abstract paintings done in pastel or acrylic.
“For me, art has a therapeutic effect similar to that of a sunrise: emotional and intellectual connectedness that promotes improvements in spontaneity, positive identity, and expanded social networks.” Kevin hopes to pursue a career in library science or counselling, and will always keep art close to his concerns.
