Kendra’s paintings express the feeling of being captivated and utterly mesmerized by the magic of the mountains. Kendra draws inspiration from all of her mountain adventures. Whether she’s skiing deep powder or climbing granite faces, she’s influenced by the feelings brought on by adventurous moments. She finds herself constantly inspired by the pure beauty of the landscapes she explores.
From an early age, the mountains became Kendra’s biggest love and passion. She’s incessantly inspired for the next adventure. A mountain girl through and through, she’s ski toured and climbed all over Western Canada, and works as a guide in both the summer and the winter.
Kendra is a self-taught artist. After buying a small collection of paint, one brush, and a sketch book in the Summer of 2015, she immediately became hooked and hasn’t looked back. All of her paintings are acrylic on Canvas and they’re all of mountains.
I started painting when I couldn’t get into the mountains. They’re something I’ve always had in my life. The mountain lifestyle captivated me from an early age, and I haven’t been able to find anything else that makes me this happy.
For me, the mountains have been my greatest mentor. Whether I’m being just absolutely awed by the beauty they hold, or I’m skiing or climbing, and overcoming fear, or sharing laughs with my partners, or seeking solitude in moments of heartache or sadness, or pushing my body and my mind in ways I didn’t think were possible.
There are moments in the mountains, that I cannot describe with words. So I paint. These feelings, of being surrendered to the mountains, have been some of the greatest and most memorable moments of my life. A feeling unmatched, incomparable.
What I hope you find in my work is my uncontainable enthusiasm of exactly that.
Thank you for sharing this passion with me!
