About

Kevin Foley

Kevin Foley was born in Melbourne in 1955. He is an experienced art educator & printmaker having studied Fine Art at the Preston Institute of Technology in the late 1970’s and attaining a Dip. Ed. in 1980 from Melbourne State College.

Kevin Foley

My studio is located on a small farm near the central victorian township of
Mia Mia. The images I create are inspired by what I see around me every day on the farm and in the district. Sometimes humorous, always literal, the objects, animals and landscape continually offer up a feast of challenging opportunities. They allow me to interpret the common place that I encounter throughout my day.
