Passionate Southern Story

40×40 | Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas | CJK

Claire J Kendrick is an artist whose paintings reflect Florida landscapes with bold, rich, beautiful colors. Collectors respond to the contemporary style and the expressive way in which she paints. The big open vistas and the marsh views that stretch for miles are among her favorite places to be.

“This is a hot climate and colorful coast it’s a joy to live here. I love the expanse of the marshlands, the big cloudscapes, the scenery is dramatic and I try to express that in my paintings. When you’re out painting in these isolated places it feels like you have the world to yourself. The subtle shifts of light can in a moment calm or energize the environment. The paintings on exhibition are color sensations, passionate responses, and magical experiences.”

She grew up in the Irish countryside and as a child explored painting “en plein air” with local artists. One of her first exhibitions of landscape paintings was at the age of fifteen.
