He was first introduced to carving at the age of 12. His uncles, Richard Widen and Louis Widen Jr., were both carvers and they taught Kevin the basics to shaping argillite. Kevin expanded his art repertoire in the 1990s when he also began painting and silk-screen making.
In 1992, a t-shirt line called Native Visions was started as a way to promote aspiring native artists. Kevin's t-shirt designs received the attention of the wardrobe department of the TV series called Highlander. Kevin was honoured to have his designs used as a staple in the wardrobe of one of the young characters on the show.
Since then, Kevin attended a business school, where he attained his certificate in Business Administration. Following the completion of school, Kevin returned to carving fulltime. For the past few years, Kevin and his step-son Steven Yeltatzie have been committed to carving together on a regular basis. Kevin is dedicated to improving the quality of his work. Kevin specializes in small argillite earrings and pendants.
