Founding Artist

Kevin Wade Calhoun was born and raised in Surry County, NC. His childhood was spent working along side of his grandparents on their farm. His grandfather was the most influential person in Kevin’s life: he was kind, thoughtful, patient, and quiet. When Kevin turned 18, he joined the United States Marine Corps. The four years he spent serving his country was an education like no other. He was introduced to fine young men from many races, religions, and regions around the globe. He had the opportunity to travel around the world and experience different cultures. Kevin was blessed to see some of the most brilliant night skies, desert vistas, and jungle vegetation he could have ever imagined. He left the military at the age of 22 and pursued a business degree at HPU where he took an Art Appreciation class and later a painting class. This was the beginning of a wonderful passion for Kevin that has been a companion, therapist, and creative outlet ever since. He owns a lighting company with his wife, Mackenzie, and they have three wonderful child.
