Kendall Perkins

  • Artist’s Statement

    I think my works have a ‘feel-good factor’ and people buy them because they make them feel happy and alive! I absolutely love and am passionate about what I do; I’m always changing and evolving. I have always prided myself in being an innovator not an imitator and create a quality product at a reasonable price that is always appreciating in value. I like to keep my work diverse so that there is always something for everyone. I NEVER set out to be Rembrandt and I never take myself too seriously!

  • Biography

    Fast and furious! Screaming colour! An explosion on canvas! Exciting! Gutsy! Energising! Theatre of the eye! Innovative! Fresh! Fantastic! Fun! Wow!
    Travelling the globe with a style that is highly individualistic, Kendall is taking the art world by storm and leaving a technicoloured trail that leads all the way back to her home in Buderim on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.

    Painting professionally for the past 30 years, Kendall travels the world exhibiting and painting “live on location” for Tourism Australia, the Office of the Australian Consulate-General and Department of Foreign Affairs and Austrade. Kendall has previously painted and exhibited in South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Guangzhou, Toronto, Houston Texas, Christchurch, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Shenzhen, China. Kendall entertains guests as she creates one of her masterpieces in a blaze of “colour and character” right before their eyes! Don’t stand too close – things can get messy!
