Biography


My work depicts things I find interesting or beautiful. As a studio realist working in a traditional style I strive to capture the atmosphere, mood, and sublime beauty of the man made or natural environment. My goal is not to document a scene as realistically as possible but to capture a sense of experience and emotion.
 
Born in Staten Island, New York, Kevin Farrell attended life drawing classes at the Art Students League of New York and was awarded a merit scholarship for one year full time study with Peter Cox but is otherwise self-taught.
 
In the mid-nineties Kevin took a hiatus from art and began a career in the semi-conductor industry. After relocating to Oregon, Kevin was inspired by the Portland’s architecture and the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest to began painting again part time. In 2007 Kevin became a member artist at the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery, has participated in numerous juried group shows and has work in several private collections.
