This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Gary Jenkins attended the Ringling School of Art for four years, and began working as a keyline artist for a greeting card company right after graduation. Subsequently, he worked for an art-store chain, and in the early 1970s became an art teacher and gallery painter.  Jenkins then specialized in floral paintings, and in 1980 he was invited to host his own PBS television painting program, called "Jenkins Art Studio."

Jenkins taught painting seminars at major conventions as well as art stores around the nation during the 1980s and 1990s, and continues to teach several workshops during the year.  He was named in The Best Floral Painters in America, published by North Light Books, and  many of his works are published in print editions. 

In addition to florals, he also paints exotic birds and tropical fish, and his works are in many private collections and represented by galleries.

Jenkins and his wife Kathwren, also an artist, live and work in Carson City, Nevada.


Biography from a third party submitted on 01/22/2009:
Flowers strike a universally responsive chord, and Gary Jenkins orchestrates combinations of them into works of art, striving for balance, proportion and the appearance of effortlessness.  They appear effortless, yet if you look closely at his canvases, there is a precise balance in each of his still life paintings.

Besides recreating flowers on canvas, Jenkins is also an amateur horticulturist. Most of the flowers in his paintings are grown either in a hothouse or his garden.

For the past eighteen years, Jenkins has hosted a nationally televised art show on PBS and also has done numerous workshops and seminars.  Over thirty paintings by Jenkins have been reproduced in color.

Jenkins's wife is also an artist, and he has three children and lives in California.
