A Selection of oil paintings showing in Gardner Colby Gallery, Naples, Florida.

Seascape Paintings in Oil By Claire J Kendrick

Commission Works for 2020 accepted.

Claire Jane Kendrick was born and raised in Northern Ireland, she attended Manchester Metropolitan University, England as a sponsored student to study Fashion Design with Technology. Her first job was in Paris, France working for one of the leading fashion trend and color forecasting agencies. Claire’s career working as a fashion designer would allow her to travel throughout Europe and it sparked her love of travel and style. It enabled her to discover museums, visit city’s throughout Europe, US and Asia.

A move to the United States of America in 2006, gave her the opportunity to pursue her dream of being a full time painter. Free of the restrictions and trappings of the commercial design world, being a painter is the ultimate creative freedom. Life as a freelance designer had prepared her as a business owner, the challenge of breaking into a new career the challenge of entrepreneurship was set.

Claire traded the busy design rooms of Paris, London and Dublin for the open air, the love of “plein air” french, for painting outdoors. I went back to nature and back to my fine art roots.“I now have the best office view in the world, albeit there is no air conditioning painting on the marshlands or beaches of North Florida.”… “If you love what you do and can channel, express a moment onto canvas then that is what is important. Truth and observation in painting is fascinating, emotion and feeling vital.”

Early in her career Claire’s painting caught the attention of Anne Packard, American Contemporary Painter from Cape Cod, MA.

“All the senses seem to be wide open in Claire’s paintings….she is a talented and committed painter and clearly has her own voice, a painter’s painter. I would place my bets on Claire now and in the future.” – Anne Packard

“Anne’s nod of approval and mentoring gave me confidence to push through barriers in the art world. It also made people take a second look.” Collectors respond to the contemporary style and the expressive way in which Claire paints. A gifted colorist, her paintings are bold, rich, and beautifully textured.

Member of Oil Painters of America, Published in American Art Collector Magazine, Florida Design and Veranda Magazine. Attracting a local and international following, Claire is dedicated to pursuing her painting career.

She returns to Donegal, Ireland at least once a year to visit family and paint commission projects. Please don’t hesitate to inquire about commission projects in 2020 and beyond.

EVERY POT SPEAKS!
When potter Worley Faver taps one of the pottery vessels he creates they ring back at him… “each pot has a voice”. The pottery also speaks in a special way to each who takes time to admire the works of art. Everyone has a personal connection and its unique to them. We had a visitor with a very special and emotional connection to “relic #18” – it’s a glorious work of art, but the coincidence is so remarkable we just had to share it with you. When I told Worley he recorded this message for our South African visitor – the inspiration for the piece came from a vessel from Africa… it spoke straight to her Afrian heart inspired by her home land….!

What is Plein Air?


Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.” artistsnetwork.com

Progression Video – Large Scale Oil Painting by Claire J Kendrick

Visit Art on Center, Fernandina – for the unique chance to view a commissioned painting by Claire Kendrick. The magnificent 6.5ft x 12ft Marsh Painting “Joyful Heart” is one of the largest private home installations we are delighted to have the opportunity to share with you before it leaves the gallery for its new home.

Commission a Painting by artist Claire J Kendrick, the process is exhilarating! We work with the collector’s, visit the site, produce sample artwork en plein air, help them define the look and composition that works best. Superimposed renderings of artwork on photos of the wall spaces, until we reach the perfect answer for the collector, and composition for the space.

Sometimes you love and appreciate an artist’s body of work, but want a customized artwork bespoke to your decor colors and style, or most often, the perfect size for a specific spot in your home or corporate office.

Claire has successfully worked with many collectors to help define and execute their unique vision in a commissioned piece. A recent collector has commissioned a 6.5 ft x12 ft Landscape Painting by Irish Painter Claire J Kendrick she has been based State Side near St. Augustine, Florida, for the last 14 years and is known locally and internationally for her dramatic large seascape and landscape works of art, that bring a sense of color and drama to any room. The process is thrilling!

Art on Centre facilitated all communications between busy collectors and the artist, resulting in a relaxed and FUN experience for all. Claire is an artist who thrives on commission work. Not all artists love the pressure but Claire in her previous career is used to the fast paced environment of the fashion design world. Claire worked in Paris, London, Brussels and has traveled extensively she takes commission work seriously and has a brilliant stylish esthetic in imagining and creating a work of art that will sing in a room. Now in her real job – being a full time painter it’s a career and a choice not for the faint hearted.

Artist’s Notes

It’s a gutsy move, said the artist – for the artist and collector to commission a painting, everyone is staring at a blank wall imagining what will be! We try using all the essential tools to walk a client through the process so they are excited, with GoPro technology I can send clients time delay video so they can see the speedy version of what’s happening. Everyone loves that part! Meeting the clients, seeing the space and it’s a joy and honor to translate the collective vision onto canvas. Growing up in a family of architects and designers the job site is familiar territory – seeing through the chaos – seeing the vision – it is compelling and very satisfying. – Claire Kendrick
