This is how it started.

My VERY FIRST painting!

Hey there!

I’m Kennedy, owner and artist of Strain Creation. 

 

I am passionate about sports, design, and art. I played four years of collegiate volleyball, recently received my BFA in graphic design, and run my own small handmade business.

How I got started

One summer day back in 2017 I made my first creation, on my parent's kitchen counter. One canvas, a handful of colors, and lots of newspapers spread all over. There was no real hesitation, I just dove right into the fluid acrylic technique. Must have been beginners luck, because I was thrilled with what I had just created. The couple pieces after the first one, not so much. Over the next couple of weeks I was able to refine my technique and went crazy with creating. Over the next couple of years, here I am! Running my own handmade business. I never would have thought this is where I would be, but I am so happy I sat down at that counter with a handful of colors back in 2017.

 

It is my goal one day to have a studio location and hopefully a physical shop to sell all of my creations at. Until then, here is a glimpse into my current work space! I have been blessed to have a space to create in, a small space to call mine. And during this crazy time, it’s everything I could have asked for. It’s nothing fancy, but it is absolutely perfect. 

I also love creating commission pieces. Have a color combination in mind? Have a specific space to fill on our wall? Let me help you bring that vision to life! It is rewarding for me to be able to create what you had envisioned.

I cannot thank you guys enough for your support throughout these past couple of years. You are the reason I am able to work towards my dream! Without you, I would not be where I am today. Thank you and welcome to my site!
