Artist Kevin LePrince

Kevin LePrince graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in economics in 1992 and then spent 12 years in the securities brokerage industry. In 2004 he abandoned a position as a Vice President with a major firm to pursue a career as a professional artist.

Painter Kevin LePrince grew up in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, a magical place that imbues his artwork with an easy elegance and grace. LePrince studied economics at the University of South Carolina, and began his career in finance, with much success. After 12 years of securities and stock markets, LePrince walked out of the office, hung up his suit, and devoted himself to the canvas, palette, and paintbrush.

LePrince is a dedicated painter. Any given day you can find him at the easel in his gallery on Lower King Street, in downtown Charleston. Working in oil paint exclusively, LePrince explores a wide variety of subject matter from boats to birds to landscapes of the Lowcountry, animal portraits, the chef series, exotic and sport fish, and more. His painterly, alla prima style unites the vast body of work. As an artist, LePrince continues to challenge himself and perfect his craft.

The success of his constantly evolving career has been featured in regional and national publications such as Art Mag, Charleston Style & Design, Art Galleries & Artists of the South, American Art Collector, and Southwest Art will feature LePrince in Spring 2013. Work hangs in private collections across the globe and notable public collections at The Ocean Room at The Sanctuary, Kiawah Island; Wexford Plantation House, Hilton Head Island; Figure Eight Island Club; Bald Head Island Club. In 2013 LePrince's art will be featured by the Huntsville Museum of Art in Alabama.
