Amanda Baron graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with BA (Hons) in Architectural Glass in 1992.
Post graduation Amanda trained in conservation of medieval stained glass and has worked as a painter, designer and conservator of stained glass for 25 years.
During her career the close examination and repair of decorative fragments of painted stained glass has enabled Amanda to focus on utilising individual pieces of glass to create new works.
Her ideas are formed by the details in landscape in order to evoke a sense of place. She is passionate about continuing to apply traditional techniques to mouth blown glass to create work that reimagines historical processes and establishes a new audience for stained glass.
