Kelvin eventually moved to the United States and continued his work with local galleries in Carmel and Palm Desert, California.
Kelvin also dedicates his time to teaching local students who want to pursue a creative career. His art classes focus on the strong foundation of drawing and painting that he had received when he was young, which he credits to his life long career May of his students have gotten into the art colleges of their choice and some are well into their artistic career in their chosen fields. Kelvin is happy to inspire the next generation of artists and even happier to continue doing what he loves - creating art.
