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.
