Claire Jane Kendrick, 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. A gifted colorist, her paintings are bold, rich, and beautifully textured.
Collectors respond to the contemporary style and the expressive way in which she paints. Pushing boundaries, Claire often starts a painting outdoors and uses a series of washes giving a free-flow effect which she then decides to manipulate or leave. This is a process of constant editing, painting, taking away then reapplying paint and wax, building the image slowly in layers.
“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.”
A member of Oil Painters of America, Claire’s paintings have been 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, and has studied with Contemporary American Painters, notably Anne Packard.

American Art Collector Magazine – the Art Market.

Nancy Winch featured in American Art Collector – Calling From Coast to Coast section — with her thoughts on current trends in the art market. It’s a delight my work gets a mention –

“The art market continues to be strong in Naples. In Southwest Florida, there is a definitive trend toward large scale transitional pieces and slightly abstracted works. Transitional pieces by Claire Kendrick and John Schuyler are in demand, as are perennial gallery favorites Kevin Sloan and Frank Corso.” – Nancy Winch
