This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, a tribute to James Hubbell by Marguerite Hampton, is from Art and Architecture, 1997 and was published on the following website: http://www.tii-kokopellispirit.org/Archive1/Tribute.html

James Hubbell was born October 23, 1931. He has lived in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Mexico, and North Carolina. He attended Cranbrook Art Academy in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan from 1954 -1956. He married Anne Stewart in 1958 and began building their home, a compound composed of seven buildings including his art studio, in Santa Ysabel, California in 1962 -- it was completed in 1987 but work still continues.

Jim has received many awards for his works and has had many one-person shows to his credit. He is recognized internationally, not only as an artist, but as a humanitarian.

His work includes: stained glass - the most extensive work being 18 palace doors created for a young Shiekh of the United Arab Emirates in 1981. The story of these doors is recorded in a book by Otto B. Rigand: James Hubbell's Palace Doors of Abu Dhabi".

Architecture and art is combined in many homes and commercial structures internationally. Hubbell has composed outstanding works of sculpture using glass, metal, wood, and other materials to transform his concepts into forms which reflect his emotional being with contemporary relevance.

The Lady with Amythest necklace, so delicate in its design, reflects yet another facet of this man so closely linked to nature. Dizzy, already with the depth of it all, you might think the talent ends there, but it does not. It goes on to express itself through water color designs and in poetry and prose. Like the cascade of a waterfall with sparkling rainbow colored translucent drops following one another to form an endless river, the artistry of James Hubbell ebbs and flows as certain as birth, life and death - beckoning humanity to drink from its depth - to heal its soul at these altars dedicated to the earthiness from which we all spring and to which we must return.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
James Hubbell of Santa Ysabel, California is an artist who is connected to nature and his inner dreams, which he expresses through architecture and art. He sculpts one-of-a-kind living environments from natural materials that provide shelter and inspiration for those who wish to live in harmony with nature.

For more than 50 years he has given the world an inspiring vision of nature as expressed in mosaic, stained glass, wood carving, metal shapes, sculpted concrete, patterned brickwork and stone. His art and architecture has been embodied in homes, schools, gardens, pavillions, nature centers, monasteries, museums, and peace parks around the world. He is the founder and guiding light of the Ilan-Lael Foundation.
