Virginia Hamill began her love affair with stained glass in 1999 after taking lessons at a nearby glass shop in her hometown in New Jersey. What began as a hobby while working full time as a real estate broker is now her passion. Virginia has graduated from making sun catchers with purchased patterns to designing and executing her own original patterns.
Virginia’s talents allow her to make larger hangings as well as small and medium sized windows. She also makes 3D items such as candleholders, fan pulls, paper wrights and various other items.
After retirement, Virginia and her husband, Mark, purchased a home in St. James and she was thrilled to be able to join the Artisans Gallery, giving her an outlet for her art as well as introducing her to other very talented and nice artists. Virginia takes pride in her meticulously detailed work and feels that nothing compares to the timeless beauty of stained glass art.
