Featured Artist: Kathryn Welch

This month’s featured artist, Kathryn Welch, owner of River City Glassworks in San Marcos, has been designing and creating stained glass artwork for over a decade. 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, or teaching classes, Kathryn creates one-of-a-kind, creatively inspired windows and mosaic sculptures for art markets. 

Kathryn received her bachelor’s degree in English from Southwestern University, and throughout high school and college took courses in a wide variety of artistic media, specializing in music (French horn and piano). Her wide range of experiences and artistic influences led her to eventually settle on stained glass, which she taught herself to create as a hobby. What began as a hobby has now run wild, and

Kathryn is a full-time artist with two studios.In addition to her career in stained glass, Kathryn serves as the president of the San Marcos Art League, which promotes artistic creativity, including sponsorship of the Art Squared Art Market. Kathryn may be found most anywhere in town, always involved with the arts 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. Art Squared is pleased to feature the work of Kathryn Welch and her business, River City Glassworks.View her work online at and on Facebook at
