She has always been creative and watercolours instantly became a passion. Kendra then moved to Fernie, BC where she held her first solo art show at the Fernie ski hill in 2001.

Kendra now exhibits her original work in several galleries and gift stores across Canada including in Jasper, Sun Peaks and Tobermory, all towns she has lived in.
