Artistically, Kenna is not limited to one form or style of art. From landscapes that translate ancient wanderer to colour-pure paintings that lighten the heart. Kenna taps into a variety of methodologies, most lead by the moment, intuitively and interdisciplinary. The works have evolved from unknown forces, the power and sweetness of more specific places and moments in nature and natural phenomena; from enthusiasm and celebration, to grace and poetry.
Inspiration drawn from the earth and blended with her desert background provides elegance in colour and form, cultivating a painting, extracting the organic elements, sometimes into patterns, textures. decorative motifs and atmospheric gestures.
Kenna was encouraged to make art from an early age by extremely creative and productive parents. She is primarily self-taught. Her mother a textile artist, her father an inventor/builder and wood working craftsman.
Born in Vernon BC, Kenna is a 3rd generation Okanagan resident. Her grandparents settled in Kelowna over 90 years ago. Kenna adores her time outdoors in the mountain and water areas of the Valley during any and every season of the year.
The paintings selected for the website represent new work and artwork made over the last 25 years reflecting some of the various themes and concepts explored as an artist.
Kenna's artistic pursuits include encouraging, sharing, interacting, appreciating and presenting the arts through her own art work, working in fine arts galleries and co-founder of the arts group Ars Longa.
