Born in Ireland, Kenny McKendry studied at the University of Ulster, Belfast before moving to England and graduating with a degree in Illustration. McKendry worked in Brighton as an illustrator for five years until the picturesque scenery of his childhood inspired a return to his home country of Co. Antrim in Northern Ireland. Once there he began painting scenes inspired by the nineteenth-century Barbizon school and the American Tonalist movement.
