She also contributed to several group art projects, including the Kathmandu Project—a series of Tibetan Buddhist Shrine rooms, and The Art Discovery Center—a corridor of Asian murals on permanent display at the George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Over the last four years she has been commissioned to paint two murals and a series of signs for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Kendra has received two artist residencies and partial fellowships from the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont. In 2008 she was awarded a grant from the Reger Arts Foundation in Highlands, New Jersey to help fund her continued work Last year, her painting “The Model School” was featured on the cover of the first annual edition of The New Guard Review (a literary review published in Portland, Maine). Kendra began working in encaustics after attending a workshop at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. Her current work centers around scenery of the MidCoast region.
