If you have had the pleasure of having Kevin as a captain or guide on your tours with us you will know that he is incredibly kind and helpful, hugely knowledgeable about the history or his country and also the marine life you will be interacting with, a skilled free diver and sailor and that he has a passion for astronomy….but one thing that you may not know about Kev is that he is also an incredibly talented painter! It is one of his greatest passions and something he loves to do during his time off.
Kevin started painting in 2007 after being inspired by the beautiful colours of the island after moving out to Caye Caulker. Kevin’s first painting was of an island setting which is what he loves to do most, but over the years he has continued to challenge himself and try different subjects and scenery including jungle environments and portraits. Kev said that he never knows if he will be able to achieve what he wants from a painting until he simply gives it a try and that he is constantly surprising himself at the end. Kev also commented that the thing he loves most about painting is the feeling of relaxation that is created when he has a brush in hand, and that in that moment he is in full control of his own artistic world and has the power to create whatever he desires.
In his spare time Kevin continues to practice and refine his talent. Painting is something that Kev truly loves to do and it will always be part of his life. There are four examples of some of his amazing artworks for you to look at in this blog.
So there you have it, now you know something new about your dear friend Captain Kevin!
