Kevin was an early pioneer of Healthy and Organic Foods in Europe in the early 80’s with his company Kallo Foods, the brand leaders in Organic- Rice Cakes and Stock Cubes.
After 20 years of sparring with the multinationals, Kevin had the opportunity to sell the business in 2000 to Quaker Foods Italy, a division of America’s rice cake giant- Quaker Oats, and return to his early love of art.
Art Collector to Dealer
Kevin began acquiring fine art in 2001, and with great enthusiasm soon built a formidable collection, including several paintings purchased from the renowned Forbes Collection of Victorian pictures sold at Christie’s in London in 2003.
Kevin sold a few of his recently acquired oil paintings in a friend’s antique shop in Petworth, where his eye for art proved very popular indeed, and decided to turn a hobby into a new venture-Thomas Fine Art.
The Fine Art Business
With a proven background in international sales and marketing, and a good knowledge of art Kevin established Thomas Fine Art in 2002 supported by a loyal team of art consultants, restorers and framers.
