Meet Kathryn

I grew up in Southern California, moved to Humboldt County to study and explore, then the SF Bay Area. I landed in San Jose during the Maker Movement and learned how to turn photography and graphic design into laser-cut ornaments, jewelry, and gifts.


Splendid Colors celebrates the cultures and landscape of California. The vibrant cultures, classic architecture, and ancient wilderness inspire my colorful designs. California style is rather informal... with a little whimsy.

I also excel in custom work.
