Kevin Nunn's Oil paintingswww.ArtPal.com/kevinsoilpaintin
My name is Kevin Nunn.
I was born in a city called Tazewell TN. I lived there with my family for a couple years until I Turned 3 years old. We then moved to nearby New Tazewell, where I lived with my mother and father and three brothers; two older and one younger. I went to an elementary school in Tazewell. I learned a lot in school though I couldn't quite concentrate on my school work because I loved to draw instead of read! I loved my 3rd grade art teacher for encouraging me to create art! Her inspiration I still remember today. How she leaned over my shoulder and told me I would be an artist one day. Little did I know she was completely right!!! Later I dropped out of school in my Junior year, Yes I know this was a bad move but I later earned my GED at least. I went to work at 17 years old full time where I built frames for living room furniture. It was hard work but fulfilling and more creative I felt than school and I also earned money for goodies! I have been working ever since for over 30 years now, three times for the furniture factory, 8 years in the Masonry business as a laborer and finally where I am now in the magazine/book business. I took an online art course from North light art school that helped me understand very important principles about painting and creating ART. I have studied art ever since then for over 20 years. I still study art and techniques every day! I love to learn all about it, as much as possible. I even draw during breaks and lunch at work so I can be the best artist I can be so others will see my work and enjoy it as much as me. I am very passionate about my art, Painting is very satisfying and heart warming for me. Creating something that others enjoy is worth the effort. I hope you all enjoy my artwork and appreciate it as much as I do. My goal as an artist is to have a painting in a museum some day, even if I don't make a lot of money. Seeing that before I die would make me so happy! That would be reward enough for me, knowing so many of you could see what I created and love it as much as me.
