Collection: Kevin J. McDonald

Kevin’s formal education in the art world was at Du Cret School of Art in Plainfield, New Jersey, where he graduated in 1981. He studied under noted Illustrator Peter Caras who had mentored under Norman Rockwell and James Bama.

After a 40-year career in corporate graphics, he is now focusing on historical paintings.

He has traveled the American West from Arizona to Colorado, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and attends western photo shoots in South Dakota taking reference photos for his paintings.

“I’m inspired to portray characters from American history - native people, explorers, and pioneers who settled and crossed this continent, and their interaction. They represent the true grit and individual spirit that molded this country. The scenes and characters that I paint hopefully make the viewer more aware of their contributions.”
