Kim Clark Renteria is an extraordinary artist and human being. Her ability to capture the spirit of a person and place and so beautifully weave in meaningful spiritual truths is rare. The Moore window in the Morrow Chapel is an absolutely breathtaking and inspiring work of art. I have seen people stand before it absolutely speechless, experiencing a moment of transcendent and overpowering beauty. Her love for the art form and her great care for those involved in the project are evident throughout the creative process. The way she incorporates light into the space creates art beyond the window and illumines an entire room as extension of the stained glass. It is magical. Her use of color, light, and symbol tells a powerful sacred story that leaves one in awe.

I had the pleasure of working with Kim Renteria as part of a remodeling that I was undertaking in my house to alleviate flooding. As I was interested in maximizing light in the new space, my architect suggested I might want to incorporate some decorative glass, and introduced me to Kim. As it turned out, I had an old beveled glass door that my late husband and I had seen on our last walk together before he died. I had been able to acquire that door which I had stored since his death. Kim was able to incorporate that glass into a larger space--and worked with me to add wonderful colors and special glass pieces, to symbolize my husband. She also included his initials very discretely at the bottom. The overall piece is truly magnificent...I cannot tell you how thankful I am to have met her and had her do this work for me, and for my sons, as part of a sort of tribute to their father.
