Kathryn Welch, owner of River City Glassworks in San Marcos, has been designing and creating stained glass artwork for thirteen years. Specializing in custom residential and commercial installations, she also repairs and restores stained glass and teaches classes on all levels. When she is not creating custom work for clients, she creates one-of-a-kind, creatively inspired windows and mosaic sculptures for art galleries and markets.
Kathryn received her BA in English from Southwestern University in 1989, and throughout high school and college took courses in a wide variety of artistic media, specializing in music (French horn and piano). This variety of experiences and artistic influences led her to eventually settle on stained glass, which she taught herself to create as a hobby. The hobby has now run wild, and Kathryn is a full-time artist with two studios.
In addition to her career in stained glass, Kathryn currently serves as the president of the San Marcos Art League. She is deeply involved with the Arts in San Marcos and the artists who call this beautiful city their home. She hopes that by continuing to spread the arts into the community and by nurturing and supporting fellow artists, that San Marcos will grow as a destination for art lovers everywhere.
