My name is Sarah Mckendry and I am an international selling Canadian Realist Painter. I first picked up a paintbrush in 2008, and I have been teaching myself the intricate, challenging and souldeep world of self expression ever since!  With my wildlife and portrait pieces, I live to capture the spirit with each stroke of my brush, and I will not stop painting until there is a soul staring back at me on the canvas. My landscapes are extensions of distant memories, and I try to paint them so that one can almost feel the fresh air as it drifts off of the piece. It is such an incredible feeling being able to paint as a full time profession, and having it weave itself so effortlessly into the fabric of raising our two young boys is something that I am beyond grateful for.





Sometimes it can be incredibly hard to find just the right painting that truly speaks to you on all levels. The size, the colours, and the subject all play pivotal roles when it comes to purchasing a piece of art for your home, and because of this I have been creating custom paintings for my clients all over the world for the past ten years.

I choose a select number of commissions to bring to life on canvas each year, and I absolutely love working alongside each client to bring their ultimate vision to life brushstroke by brushstroke. If you are interested in securing one of my remaining commission spots for 2020, kindly fill out the information below and I will be in touch to answer any questions that you may have!
