Stephanie Ross has her art and teaching degrees from CCAC and University of Hawaii. She has emphasized color in her art with painting, enameling, and fabric, and taught for many years at Holy Nativity elementary school in Honolulu.
Stephanie began working with her husband Hugh Jenkins in 1996, collaborating on highly colored blown glass vessels. By 1998 they had decided to leave their teaching positions and seek an appropriate location for their own glass studio. In 2000 they moved to the Hawai’i Island and found their property in Honoka’a, where they have operated their own shop and founded Big Island Glass and Art Gallery, now representing a wide range of Big Island fine craftsmen and artists.
