Kim Bolanowski was born in Chicago, IL  and moved to Topanga, CA in 1997.  She and her husband, Ron, have both been in the Motion Picture Business for a combined total of more than 50 years. They built and designed their home in Topanga with plans of one day having an art studio on site. The peace and tranquility Topanga provides is an artist’s dream!  The Topanga Art Glass Studio is on 10 acres, at 2000′ elevation in the Santa Monica Mountains, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Malibu. This is a daily inspiration for Kim’s glass work. This self-taught glass artist has learned much of her design skills from her 20+ years in the Film Industry, doing Props on Television and Film projects.  In 1990, Kim started doing stained glass and ceramic projects, which has lead her to her knew found passion for both fusing and blowing glass.
