Cathryn Jenkins

Cathryn Jenkins is a full-time sculptor living in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Raised in the Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia, she developed a love of the natural world, the local wildlife, and her surroundings, and a keen interest in what was going on in her mother’s stone sculpting studio.  Years of dedication to her art form have allowed her to work large while still maintaining the essence, movement, and naturalistic representation of the beauty of wildlife.
