Kevin Menck is a painter from Nashville, Tennessee, USA. His artistic journey began as a graphic designer and a self-employed illustrator. In 2003 he slowly started to gravitate to fine art, specifically landscape painting from life, en plein air. Being an avid outdoorsman for years, he has a deep respect for the outdoors.

« I remember sitting in a duck blind or deer stand and trying to figure out how to capture what I was seeing on canvas. To get that atmosphere, to make a cold day look cold and hot days hot. I want the viewer to look at it and know what it actually was to be there.

I am not sure I do this because of my love of art or of my love of the land. They have become indivisible for me. One in the same.»
