Kelvin Henderson / Fruits of the Spirit Fine Art
Hometown: Suitland, MD
Kelvin Henderson painted as a side hobby for over two decades while also holding a government job in the Justice Department. Since 1995, he has supported himself as a full time artist through art shows, gallery showings and museums.
His fine art acrylic paintings fall into two distinct themes and styles: brightly colored montages of jazz musicians and impressionist style paintings of wildflowers.
Former NFL player Julian Peterson and talk show host Tavis Smiley are two of Kelvin’s most prominent fans. He has won numerous awards for his artwork and been commissioned by many nonprofit and arts organizations.
