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 Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Fernandina and Naples, Florida. 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

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.

Having a Studio in the “Historic Art District” is a unique and special experience, it keeps me in touch with a wonderful art community. Life as an independent artist is essentially a solitary profession, the artists on Marine Street, Charlotte Street and Aviles Street all know and promote each other, the area is known as the “Historic Art District” because of its early connection with painters in the 1920s who set up the Art Association on Marine Street and historically had studios on these streets. Thanks to all of you who came to Art Walk in support of the Ukraine! St Augustine Poets, Artists and Galleries made this a great night! #artcommunity #historicartdistrict #fundraiser #artistsoninstagram #Artgallery #landscapepainter #visitstaugustine #staugustinefl #stauglocals ...

Fundraising for Ukraine 🇺🇦
First Friday Art Walk

CJK-Studio & Gallery will be hosting work by Gage Wellington, a young American man, with Ukrainian family heritage he was prompted to design a T-shirt with the word…. gravity!

Why GRAVITY on the T-shirt?

“I chose the word “gravity” since in physics it's one of the hardest forces to overcome. So I imagined gravity as somthing everyone has to overcome in order to purse their goals, passions, and dreams.” - Gage

Gage’s, Baba (grandmother in Ukrainian) will be representing him at art walk selling his gravity T-shirt designs for $15 with 50% of the proceeds going to charity. We also support the entrepreneurial spirit of Gage and his first business venture.

Gage’s uncle is a diplomat and is in the Ukraine currently aiding with the war efforts and the ongoing situation.

CJK-Studio & Gallery will be exhibiting new landscapes and seascapes in oil, by artist
Claire J Kendrick.
