Kirsty Brooks studied architectural glass and painting at Edinburgh College of Art. She is currently a lecturer and independent architectural glass artist. Pivotal to her work is the manipulation of an image, typically screen printed and combined with a variety of glass processing techniques including sandblasting and etching to produce a final piece responding to the history or functioning of its surroundings.
