Meet the Artist!
Hello! My name is Alexandra Huggins and Alternative Stained Glass is my company, and my passion.
Originally from England, I moved to the Clermont area in 2004 with my parents. The surrounding lakes and trails are the reason i've stayed in the area ever since! In my free time i'll be out on the West Orange Trail, or enjoying my new found hobby, Pickleball!
I started working with decorative glass over 17 years ago when my parents set up a Stained Glass Overlay (SGO) franchise. Together we installed many designs all over Central Florida. Unfortunately though, due to health reasons, my parents had to return to the UK in 2012, but i decided to stay put in the Orlando area.
Four years later in 2016, I decided to return to the business I know and love. With the support of my husband Jamie, i established Alternative Stained Glass LLC. We converted the garage into a studio, and I set about re-connecting with the various customers and folks I'd met over the years.
I truly love working with glass. Every project i work on is unique and presents a new design challenge. Whether it's transforming a dull window into a beautiful piece of artwork, showcasing your favorite Disney character, or providing privacy without sacrificing natural light. Each piece tells a different story and is unique to the individual customer.
When I'm not designing and creating glass I really enjoy the outdoor life. Hiking, cycling, Skiing and of course travel. I've travelled to a lot of destinations within the USA, and also much further afield around Europe. Travel gives me a lot of inspiration for designs and food for thought.
