...
Gary Jenkins was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in St. Petersburg ,Florida. n 1962 he graduated from the well known four year Ringling School of Art in Sarasota Florida. pon graduation,he moved to So. California. ary started his full time art career working as a key line artist for a large greeting card company. A little later on,he started working for the large national art store chain,Aaron Bros. During the early 1970s while working at that store, Gary painted in his spare time and began to develope his style of oil painting, focusing primarily on Landscapes and Floral painting. The 1970s is when he developed his well known trademark style of painting Roses and Poppies. He worked for the art store chain for 15 years and eventually became a teacher at the store. As far as he knows ,he was the first artist to teach the one -day workshop concept. Soon after he began to teach,the art store produced about 60 of his original paintings into print and begun to market them to art stores and galleries through out the United States. With this name recognition, this led to request from art shops for Gary to teach 5-day seminars.. During the late part of 1970 he traveled to several cities up and down the West coast to teach at many locations, annually.
In 1980,Gary purchased a video camera and started to produce his own how-to art instruction videos. This was the year he also met Kathwren while he was teaching in Nevada. ogether with his future wife, they would travel to teach seminars ,by that time, teaching across the U.S,and sell their videos to their students. They were the first art teachers to do this. In 1982 Gary had the opportunity to meet with the station manager of KOCE, the PBS television station in Huntington Beach Ca. Gary and Kathwren took the demo tapes to the station that they had made themselves to show manager. Luckily he liked the demos and a deal was made and that was the start of Gary's very long TV art career. Gary was the 2nd. artist to go on national PBS TV,after Bill Alexander, who was also taping at the same station.
