Kevin Macpherson

Kevin Macpherson is one of the country's leading plein air painters and is highly respected among his fellow artists and collectors. Steeped in the American Impressionist tradition, his oil paintings are distinguished by their broad strokes and classic use of color and layering. He is a master of the art of painting outdoors directly from nature, en plein air.

Born in New Jersey, Kevin Macpherson studied at the Northern Arizona University where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1978. He also took numerous classes at the Scottsdale Artists' School. After years as a successful freelance illustrator in Phoenix, Arizona, Kevin moved to New Mexico to pursue his goals as a fine artist. His home in the mountains east of Taos is the starting point for his frequent worldwide travels.

Along with winning countless Best of Show awards, his paintings have influenced many feature articles in Art of the West, Art Talk, and graced the covers of Southwest Art, American Artist and the Artist's Magazine. Kevin is a sought after workshop teacher here and abroad, his classes filling years in advance. He is the author of "Fill your Oil Paintings with Light and Color" which, now in its third printing, has become a best seller for North Light Books. Kevin's bimonthly column, "The Artist's Voice", is featured in Southwest Art Magazine. His leadership as President of Plein Air Painters of America has brought the organization to the forefront of representational painting. Kevin is the first artist in the Oil Painters of America to be elevated from Signature Member status to that of Honorary Master Signature Member.
