Cathryn Jenkins

Photo of Cathryn JenkinsTHE SCULPTOR - The Story of an Artist

Cathryn Jenkins, daughter of prominent sculptor, Fran Jenkins, spent many hours in her mother's studio learning about the qualities of different stones as well as the relationship between artist and medium, while gaining an understanding of line, form and the joy of sculpture.

Developed over the years, her own stylized representational form, influenced not only by her mother but also Inuit and acclaimed American sculptors, combines the pleasure of real touch and strong line. The skilfull union of these key elements, consistently present in all Cathryn's work allows the creation of unmatched and timeless works of art.

The stones selected for Cathryn's work are hand quarried in British Columbia. These marbles, alabasters, serpentines and soapstones have individual qualities that are unveiled by hammer and chisel held by the hands of and artist. Diamond blades, rasps, files and the artist's eye further attempts to reveal flowing lines that portray agility, powerful lines and lustrous natural surfaces. It is impossible to resist the temptation to run your hands over the finished pieces.

Cathryn's series of sought after wildlife series continue to hold a place of pride among many corporate and private collections. Works from this series have received many awards.

Cathryn has recently moved into the bronze medium giving her works a new dimension. The surface of metal with its nuances provided by textures and patinas give the viewer new things to discover. The ability to polish or leave rough, add patina or not, give highlights to or beat smooth gives the works new levels for the eye to work out and understand. The bronze adds a new level of sophistication and permanence to her work.
