Employing a romantic, sincere and feminine approach, McKendrick depicts female figures in fantastical scenes that often contain hints of nefarious magic. However, McKendrick's use of both the fantastic and the absurd barely obscures the heavy symbolism in her work. The artist is a fluent colorist, combining fruity, saturated hues to produce a discordant sweetness—hinting at the emotional realities that undergird her compositions. McKendrick's enigmatic, narrative scenes hover between whimsy and the macabre, merging playful daydreams with fantasy.
