Frances Kendall is a contemporary realist whose painting is characterized by vivid yet harmonious color and translucent light.
Frances works in oils, primarily as a portrait painter. Her large portraits include exquisitely detailed interiors or landscapes that offer extra understanding of the subjects.
Born and raised in Kenya, and since then living in South Africa, Kendall finds herself drawn repeatedly to the images and iconography of Africa.
Between portrait commissions she is presently embarking on a series of landscapes of Wakkerstroom where she has recently built a new home.
Frances seeks to create beauty and in doing so to give pleasure.
