Jeremy Kendall was born and raised in South Dakota. He began drawing around the same time we all do, but he could never really put it down. He attended Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming to study photography. While there, he took some basic drawing classes along with a 2D Design class. Soon after graduating with a photography degree, he put photography down and began teaching himself how to paint with oil and acrylic. Lucky for him he had good friends in the art community who encouraged and informed him of the basics of paint on canvas. He toyed with the idea of returning to school to follow his passion in painting, but discovered his voice in art has always led him back to primitive structures and unrefined lines that he feared would be taken from him in classical education. His themes are typically inspired from dreams, both in the day and night. Since 1999, he has been a periodic member of the South Dakota art community.
