Gwendolyn Garth was born in Cleveland, Ohio and grew up in four Cleveland neighborhoods, Hough, Central, Fairfax and Glenville. Gwendolyn is a multimedia artist, Creative Arts Therapy Specialist and Community Activist. As Gwendolyn writes in an artistic statement: "My work explores a new form of artistic expression, that questions the canon of art history’s conventional attitudes towards art making. My Art investigates the unlimited possibilities of art making by combining multiple mediums. I create because Art is in the middle of my last name and in the middle of me and I have No Plan B."
