Kevin was born in Chester in 1950 and from an early age found that he loved art. As with most artists he firstly loved drawing which is evident in the work he does today. He went on to study for a short time at Chester School of Art as a mature student in 1971.
Having originally painted in Oils, Sparrow changed to watercolour in the mid 1980s, which allowed him to combinethe detail of drawing with the spontaneity of watercolour.
Sparrows work has been exhibited in many galleries and shows throughout the North West and Wales. Alongside this his work can be found in many collections in the UK, Australia, and the U.S.A.
