About the Artist

Kendra Shea Preston

Hello! My name is Kendra. I am an artist based in Michigan. I graduated in 2017 with an Associates of Art from Grand Rapids Community College, and have studied Illustration at Kendall College of Art and Design, as well as Graphic Design at Ashworth College.

In my personal work, my creative focus is on the impact an individual can make to our world through their personal endeavors; Self Love, Body Positivity, Wellness, and Environmentalism.

I enjoy a multitude of mediums and primarily work with a mix of clay, watercolor, gouache, as well as natural and up-cycled materials. My experience in the fine arts gives me a creative edge to my digital works and compositions, which primarily are created in Photoshop.

If you have any questions, or would like to collaborate please feel free to contact me!
