Born in 1955 in Port Arthur, Texas, Kevin Lavender's involvement with art has
been a lifelong passion. Studying art in Los Angeles, California, he didn't
turn to it as a business until 1985 when he opened a professional Tattoo studio
in Yucca Valley, California and then in Sandpoint, Idaho after moving there in 1992.
His studio in Idaho has been the most successful and longest running studio in the
entire state. He was quoted in 2009 that "After giving people what they wanted
for over 30 years, I've decided to follow a different path", when he retired
from professional Tattooing and started painting.
Kevin has experience with Ceramics, sculpture, Jewelry making, pastels, charcoals,
watercolors, portraits and was a published cartoonist.
