Kevin Haynes

Kevin Haynes was born in the small village named Waterhead on the outskirts of Oldham in 1949. Waterhead was dominated by cotton mills where many hundreds of people were employed.  On leaving school he served an apprenticeship as a mechanical engineer.  Now semi-retired after running his own engineering business for over 30 years he has started to paint his childhood memories of working men and their working environments.

 Kevin has had no formal training in art but has been a keen collector of contemporary and abstract artwork for many years and has come in contact with many artists that have influenced his thinking.

His friend artist Peter Stanaway along with Kevin’s wife Pauline encouraged Kevin to start expressing his artistic tendencies through painting.  Kevin has always been a keen sportsman and some of his paintings of sporting events reflect this.
