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.
