|Kincaid was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in 1966, but he has lived and worked in Dallas
for the last several years. "I always knew that I wanted to be an artist," he says, "although my
original interests were in drawing and painting. It was only in high school that I began to
develop an interest in photography and printmaking." He pursued these mediums in
college, earning his BFA from Texas Tech University and an MFA from the University of Kentucky.
|Kincaid's work is a favorite among collectors and he urges people to fall in love with the
work they intend to buy. "Collecting with financial interests in mind is not really collecting,"
he explains, "it's investing. You should look for works by artists with whom you feel you share
an aesthetic, work that haunts you, that you can't stop thinking about." Of course,
learning a bit about the artist doesn't hurt either. "Find out what drives the creation
of the work," he says."Chances are, you'll love it even more."
