Kendall Portis

by Sarah Judson November 24, 2015

 

One of our recent award winners, Kendall Portis, had an unusual journey to his current occupation as a professional artist. Trained as an illustrator, he spent 20 years in law enforcement before becoming an Embedded Police Mentor for an international training program in Afghanistan under the command of U.S. and Hungarian Army Units.

 

His website includes categories for Still Life, Figurative, Landscape, Works on Paper, Figure Studies/Nudes, Portrait and Animals.

The central topic for me is very simple: Light. It illuminates the world around us so that we can see the awesome beauty of God’s creation. Regardless of the subject matter, I want to invite the viewer to experience the dance of light as it hits the surface of the object being displayed.”

 

 

In addition to his website, his work is available at The LONA Gallery in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
