Kindrie Grove is an Alberta born artist, author and illustrator, whose connection to animals, both wild and domestic, has always been a close one. Kindrie's first drawings as a young girl always expressed her reverence for animals as powerful and magnificent creatures.
Her continued pursuit of art as a means of life has led to formal training at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, and a successful career as a professional artist. To date, she has studied wildlife in their natural habitats across much of Canada, the United States and southern Africa.
Kindrie is the author/illustrator of A Field Guide to Horses (Lone Pine Publishing), and is best known for her extraordinarily large, original oil paintings, which explore the magnificent beauty of life-sized zebras, lions, cheetahs, bears, elephants and many other wild creatures, often emphasizing their complex connections to humans.
Her work is currently featured in galleries across Canada and Europe, and is enjoyed in numerous international private and corporate collections. Kindrie often makes a practice of donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of her works to conservation organizations and environmental charities, and through her work hopes to inspire others to protect the Earth's incredible diversity of life.
Today Kindrie Grove lives with her husband, Michael Bezener, and their son, Kellen in British Columbia's beautiful Okanagan Valley.
