Kendra began working as a graphic designer in her early 20s, but quickly and unexpectedly found herself with a paintbrush in hand. After a year-long mission trip, she became a full-time artist and strives to bring hope, joy and beauty to peoples’ homes and lives. Creating mixed media paintings, Kendra's artwork depicts dreamlike, nostalgic and natural scenes using a combination of collage, pattern, texture and layers of acrylic paint. Although she works with various subjects (nature, people, street scenes, etc), her collage technique gives them a thread of similarity. Pages from old books, sheet music and other found papers allow Kendra to use words and phrases to help tell her story and whisper a bit of encouragement to others.
