Growing up in northern Michigan, gave Kendre access to some of the most beautiful sites in the world! She now resides in Traverse City and has recently pursued all that Traverse City has to offer artistically. She finds joy in sitting on the beach, breathing in the fresh air, while painting what she sees. Sometimes her art is not always what she sees in front of her, it is a process that goes with how she feels at the time. She enjoys all mediums, from sculpture to acrylic and watercolors. She does not limit herself to one thing. Her thick, whimsical style allows its viewers to engulf themselves in her work.
Kendre obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Business Communications, through Oakland University in Michigan, and her Master’s degree in Business Administration, through Northwood University in Michigan. During her first year of college, she was able to participate in applied art and art history classes. She enjoys spending time with her husband and extended family, as well as participating in outdoor activities such as kayaking, biking, hiking, and snowmobiling. Her lifelong involvement in the arts and culture centered philosophy guides her with her desire to make a positive impact on the local community. She looks forward to being a part of such a wonderful and artistic community.
