Amy's love of stained glass began many years ago, when she had a part-time job working for an antique auctioneer and would
hold up authentic Tiffany lamp shades for the bidders to view. This up-close-and-intimate contact with these magnificent shades
left a lasting impression, and to this day, lamps and lighting fixtures are her favorite objects to design and build.
In 1989, when Amy sold her Dry Cleaning business, she took a class in stained glass at a local gift shop, and was immediately
hooked on the medium. Amy is fond of saying that she became so enamored of stained glass that she bought the store!!!
After 13 years in the retail environment, in 2010 Amy made a major change at Trinity, and decided to discontinue the retail
portion of her business and focus only on the custom/commission work that has become her passion. With 21 years experience
building all sorts of custom stained glass for both residential and commercial clients, Trinity's reputation is long-standing
and well known in the area, and keeps Amy very busy!
Although most of Amy's work is privately commissioned, many pieces can be viewed in the Photo Gallery area on this site
