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.

I realize at the end of a long night and open studio I’ve been wearing a white oil mark much like a bindi! A white Bindi is a mark of protection worn by many Hindus in the center of the forehead. The word is derived from the Sanskrit, bindu, which means “point” or “dot.” Bindu refers to the point from which creation begins and the bindi symbolizes this point. Traditionally, the bindi is red, yellow or white. Well …wishing you all a good night with peace and protection! Studio by appointment, open late first Friday each month! 212cCharlotte Street, St Augustine #visitstaugustine #open studio #oilpainter #peace #protection #studio #historicartdistrict #painter #artist #artiststudio #indianculture #indianbindi #protection #vistflorida ...

Open studio is a unique chance to see what’s happening. I love to face many canvases in January, so I always prepare three or four large scale projects before the end of the year - so you’ll see many works in various stages of completion along with some small works available for purchase. Happy New Year, may 2023 be a year filled with creativity and new beginnings. Thank you to all who love, support and encourage the Arts! Stay inspired! Love from Claire @CJK - Studio 💓x Come visit me in St. Augustine, FL ☀️#scenery #landscapes #artwalk #openstudio #byappointment #artistatwork #studiovisit #visitstaugustine #newyear #blastoff #visitflorida #commissionwork #newwork #newyear #newinterior #interiordesigner #interiorart #artplacement ...

A little inspiration from Charleston, South Carolina. Some great trips this year…even hitting Savannah and Fernandina on the way home…sights, sounds and flavors open our senses to the possibilities for the year ahead. Galleries always an inspiration and some artists knocking it out of the park!! Talent and more talent. Back to the easel with a little quick step and an encouraging push to up the game!!! Always motivating to be in good company!!! Time for a new travel list. Balance list - I won’t bore you but I know what I need to do and so do you! Let’s go 2023. #travel #painter #inspiration #familytime #art #inspire #keepdancing #keepsmiling ...

When you come down the stairs on Christmas Morning, I hope you too will be in for a treat! A simply stunning home installation all ready for the holidays celebrates, the vertical landscape a great format and composition for the space.

Up close its abstract, far away focused. “Marsh Glow” makes an impact 48x60 and sometimes you just got to back away from the easel, this one says it all. What do you think? #abstractlandscape #abstractart #art #landscape #marsh #intracoastalwaterway #oilpainting ...
