Hanley, Richard E., Omnibus Studios
Okemos; New Era, Michigan

Biography: From the booklet, "Grand Ledge First United Methodist Church, Education Unit Stained Glass Program, 2000-2001," by Dr. C. Bernard Johnson.

Richard E. Hanley president of Omnibus Studios, Inc., was born in 1948 in Muskegon, Michigan. From an early age he was interested in the arts, especially drawing and painting. He took classes in sculpture, watercolor, and drawing and won several awards in his teens, including a second place for his metal sculpturing in the Annual Christian Art Show in Sparta, Michigan.

He received a scholarship to Michigan State University where he received his formal art training. He also received a scholarship to Parson's School of Design in New York City.

After college, he trained with Andrew R. Maglio, a Sicilian master stained glass artist and maosaicist. Then, in 1973 Richard established Omnibus Stuidos, Inc. in Okemos, Michigan.

Since then, the studio has designed and built stained glass windows for churches, homes, businesses in almost every state, and several foreign countries. The studio's primary focus is creating high quality stained glass windows for churches. In 1993 Richard E. Hanley was accepted as an accredited member, the highest status of membership, in the Stained Glass Association of America.

Richards' wife, Anne, is an RN, and they home school their three children, Kately 15, Joshua 12, and Peter 10. All three children are artists and are accomplished musicians. In 1999 they built a home on 10 acres in New Era, Michigan, on the shore of Lake Michigan. The studio also moved to this location.
