Kevin Lyles grew up in Tennessee and Texas. He graduated from Abilene Christian University in Texas with a BFA in art and then Bradley University in Illinois with an MFA in sculpture. After graduate school he worked for ten years in sculptural restoration repairing monuments and architectural ornamentation across the country. For the past twenty-eight years he has taught art at the University of Rio Grande where he is a full professor. His work has been shown in over 160 international, national, and regional exhibitions and is in many permanent collections. His sculpture often mixes several media within each piece with the aim of developing a visual story for the viewer. Currently he lives in rural southeast Ohio where he has a timber-frame home and a studio in the woods.
