Kathy Jenkins love for glass began in 1975 when she took a stained glass class. Over the years,
while maintaining a successful medical computer consulting business, she continued to create
intricate stained glass windows for her many clients in Southern California. Five years ago, she
made the decision to pursue her love for glass on a full time basis. Implementing her stained glass
skills, she became involved with fused glass. Kathy studied under several talented fused glass
artists including Brock Craig, Avery Anderson, Patty Gray, and Lisa Vogt. These artists helped her
to hone her skills and apply them to her own work. Utilizing glass, kilns, sandblasting, and finishing
tools she now creates functional and decorative glass pieces for the home. She has created glass
tile backsplashes for rustic mountain homes as well as platters, plates, lighting
sconces, and many other items that reflect her love of the mountains, ocean and desert.
Kathy maintains a studio in her home in La Quinta and resides there as well
as in Huntington Beach, California with her husband and Cocker Spaniel Cody.
