Contemporary Artist

Claire Jane Kendrick

Claire, was born in Ireland and attended college in England at Manchester Metropolitan University, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Honors degree. She worked as a fashion designer in France, Belgium, Sweden and England before relocating to the United States of America in 2006. It was then she returned to painting, full time and exhibiting her work in St. Augustine, Fernandina, Naples, Florida. In 2023 Claire added gallery representative's in Cape Cod, MA and Vero Beach, FL. Expressive brushwork, strong sense of color and a flair for stylish design are distinguishing characteristic's, showing the unique voice in a CJK painting.

Plein Air Painter & Studio Painter

A gifted colorist, her paintings are bold, rich, and beautifully textured. From a family of architects and designers, artistic expression, a love of design and an eye for detail have enriched her life as a painter.

Collectors respond to the contemporary style and the expressive way in which she paints. “I love the expanse of the marshlands, the big cloudscapes, the scenery is dramatic and I try to express that in my landscape paintings. When you’re out painting “en plein air” 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.” Her paintings are color sensations, passionate responses, and magical experiences.

Attracting a local and international following, Claire is dedicated to perusing her painting career, and has studied with Contemporary American Painters, notably Cynthia Packard and Anne Packard.



Claire Jane Kendrick, has been living in North Florida since 2006. As a painter she loves the Marshlands and Intercostal waterways in St. Augustine living on Vilano Beach provides constant inspiration for her Coastal Seascapes and Marsh Landscapes. Her paintings have been published in American Art Collector Magazine, Florida Design and Veranda Magazine. Claire is a member of Oil Painters of America.


“You should paint as you live life; expression should be in your work. See the things of beauty you enjoy and fill your life with that energy.” - CJK

🎨 Revisiting old works is like revisiting old memories - each stroke brings back a flood of emotions and experiences. On this spring morning, I found myself drawn back to the marsh, the colors changing, a diptych painted many years ago exploring the warm tones and changing colors of the marsh. Prints of the two paintings proudly displayed at the Mayo Hospital, a testament to the journey these pieces have taken.

💫 One of these panels was commissioned by a client, and it’s been a joy to see it transformed into a high-quality Giclee print. ✨ In the studio, I’ve added my touch, infusing the painting with vibrancy and freedom in brush strokes. 🎨 Layer upon layer, I’ve explored new depths, learning and growing with each stroke.

I hope the clients will love the final result as much as I do. Prints, like this one, offer an accessible way to bring art into your space, whether it’s for a highly trafficked area or simply for the joy of swapping out paintings more frequently. #ArtistsOnInstagram #PrintsForSale #CommissionedArt #ArtCollectors #GicleePrints #ArtForEverySpace #BrushStrokes #ArtistsJourney #ArtIsLife #MarshPainting #ArtInspiration #ArtisticExpression #StudioLife #ArtLovers #SupportLocalArtists
