Meet the Instructor: Kim Joy - Kim Steinmuller Joy was raised in upstate New York and now lives and works in Woodbridge, VA. She has been a stained glass artist and teacher since 1982. Her works are in private and public collections worldwide. As a bead artist, Kim has been working since 2001. Most of her pieces are in the traditional style but are starting to branch out to incorporate materials not usually found in the mediums. She hopes that her work will inspire and encourage others in their artistic endeavors. She has been taught by local artists in New Mexico and for bead work she has received instruction from PJ Solomanson of Kailua, HI and she apprenticed under Janet Flynn of the Beaded Rabbit in Great Falls, VA.

Kim came from a family with various artistic talents - watercolor, woodworking, quilting, stained glass, masonry and poetry. In following her ancestral footsteps, she has chosen stained glass and bead work as her mediums to express her artistic heritage. She belongs to National Capital Art Glass Guild, Del Ray Artisans, ArtBeat Gallery and PMC Guild. Her work can be found at various local boutiques and craft shows.
