Kathy Lande was born with a colorful imagination bigger than the sky. Falling in love with anything old and rusty she scouts for abandoned and broken wooden pieces headed for the junk pile. With creative genius and a wood burning tool, she creates unique gifts of home décor. Her love for children birthed a happy line of children’s furniture that sparkles with whimsical and colorful characters. Each piece bursts with the love of God and His Word that dwells in her heart!

Kathy’s raw talent was trained and honed at the Ringling School of Art and Design as she earned her degree in fine art, illustration, and graphic design. The advertising and marketing corporate world was blessed to have this award winning art director and designer lead their artistic teams for 23 plus years. Her personal ambitions were far reaching as she created original pieces and became a licensed artist with several manufactured gift lines. Though living in the Twin Cities for most of her life, Kathy’s heart was always drawn to the call of the loon at Eagle Lake where she had spent summers as a kid. So, in 2009 Kathy traded in her high fashion world for the sweet life in the northern Minnesota woods. Renovating her Dad’s garage, she transformed it into her creative studio known as Glory Hill.

If you’re looking for an exciting adventure while searching for that special one-of-a-kind gift, come to Glory Hill Studios. Kathy will refresh and inspire you as she offers you a cup of robust coffee, shows you around, looks you in the eye and shares a smile that will wrap you up in the love of Jesus.
