Kevin Mayer was born in Los Angeles. Since 1990 he has been a professional painter. He has exhibited widely at public and private galleries in the U.S and Great Britain, including the Painted Bride Gallery in Philadelphia and the Holland Gallery in London. In 1992 he had a solo show at the Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre in Cwmbran, Wales, where he was artist-in-residence under the sponsorship of the Southeast Wales Arts Association. His work appears in public collections, including those of the Capitol Childrens' Museum in Washington, DC, the Office of the Mayor of St. Petersburg, Russia, and the United Nations in New York City. In addition he has produced a number of commissioned portraits, landscapes and murals for private clients. Inquiries from prospective clients are welcomed. Mr. Mayer is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. His studies of oil painting techniques of the Old Masters as a copyist (at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City) have profoundly influenced his work. He is an adjunct lecturer at SUNY Cortland and currently resides in Freeville, NY.
