Kevin Jester

Kevin Jester spent the better part of 35 years here in Coeur d’Alene as an architect. The majority of those years were with Architects West and we love that if you walk out our back door you practically walk into their front door. This to say that he has been right here all along … and now we are thrilled to be able to have him join our Blackwell Gallery family.

The choice of which of his works to start with wasn’t easy, but we hope you enjoy his pastel works as much as we do. The color palate showcases the beauty of the land that surrounds he and his family here in the Inland Northwest. Kevin starts every painting with a watercolor underpainting and then proceeds to layer rich color over it with his pastels.

Kevin and his wife Patti live in the old Fort Grounds area where he has transformed the garage on their historic property into a unique studio space where he continues to create and explore.
