Kendra is an MA graduate from the Royal College of Art, London. she is a world-renowned contemporary animal sculptor working with the medium of galvanised wire.
What interests me most about studying animals is identifying the spirit and character of the individual creatures. I try to create a sense of the living, breathing subject in a static 3-D form, attempting to convey the emotional essence without indulging in the sentimental or anthropomorphic.
She is most well-known for the 2010 Historic Royal Palaces commission to make thirteen sculptures for the Tower of London. ’Royal Beasts' helps tell the story of the Royal Menagerie with existed at the Tower from the 1200s. The thirteen works are a permanently installed at this world heritage site.
