A bit about KENDRA

I am a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art, as well as Aquinas College. I loved Massart. It's a phenominal school.

I have grown up taking care of children. I'm the eldest of four, the oldest cousin on both sides, and I've been babyitting since I was 9. It makes sense I am a teacher. I love what I do. I came across an opening for a pre-school teacher in Brookline, MA. years ago. It was one of the best things that ever happened to me.   

 I am now the Art teacher for Saint Margaret's Regional School in Buzzard's Bay and Saint Stanislaus School in Fall River. I also currently teach art of all mediums to all ages out of my home studio. 

 I am the illustrator for the children's book, "Three Ducks and a Goose". The cd attached includes the title song, sung by the chldren's choir of Saint Margaret's. Involving my students is a very touching aspect of this project. This book was a blast to draw, and including my students has made it more memorable.

I also drew illustrations for "Matilda". It's the tale of a donkey whose life changes for the better.

I have a deep respect for nature. I love the organic treasures I find on a walk or hike... the way clouds dance and swirl; creating colors in layers. I get excited watching things grow in my garden. I believe all of this reflects in my creations. 

I love listening to audiobooks in my studio. SO MUCH FUN. I get lost in my little world and have a blast. 

Again..... I love what I do.

I have participated in a large number of regional shows, auctions, and fairs throughout my years as a professional artist. Galleries as far as California have exhibited my sculptural clay work, as well as my pencil drawings.

Awards are listed below.

My pottery can be seen at Whimsical Wishes in the Village Landing in Plymouth, Ma. 
Commissions are available for portraits...people and animals, landscapes, illustrations, sculpture and pottery. Actually, any idea you have, I can accomplish.
