About the artist

This, from Kendall: "In 1986 I graduated from the Art Institute of Atlanta with a degree in Visual Design. While in college, I was exposed to illustrative studies at the Portfolio Center of Atlanta where I discovered my real passion, expressing myself through paint.

The conflicts between sustaining a living and growing as a young artist resulted in a struggle to stay afloat for several years. As I searched for a viable employment option, I was led to start a career in local law enforcement which covered a span of more than twenty years.

However, in 2012, I asked myself a serious question, If not now...when ?

I knew I needed to implement a plan of action, if art was ever going to be my full time profession.Shortly thereafter, I secured a job as an Embedded Police Mentor, for an international program in Afghanistan.While serving in Afghanistan under the command of U.S. and Hungarian Army Units, I assisted in the development and training of Afghan Security Forces. By the end of June of 2014, I had completed my contractual obligation and this brought my job assignment in Northern Afghanistan to an end.

Upon my return to the US, I was more convinced than ever that through my art I could make a contribution to humanity, for the better.

So over the last few years, throw workshops and intensive mentoring, I have been working to simply grow in the language of painting.

As an artist,the central story, whether it’s told through light and shadow or local tone, is always about how shapes and light defines our surroundings. It illuminates the world around us so that we can see the awesome beauty of our God’s creation. My focus is never on the subject matter, but instead, what attracts me most are the abstract shapes that together paint the picture.

This is how I see the world and I want to invite the viewer into this experience.The objective is for my art to enrich the lives of others and encourage them to embrace the joys of living."
