Tristan Leicester studied at the Glasgow School of Art obtaining a BA in Painting and Printmaking, 2015. During his time in Glasgow he became interested in traditional painting and drawing techniques. He developed this practice further at the Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts (PFSTA) in London where he gained an MA, 2019. While studying at the PFSTA he also began to explore stained glass techniques using the specialist facilities and expertise of the Swansea College of Art Architectural Glass department.

He has translated his exploration of brush-and- line work from his drawings on to a series of stained glass and sand blasted panels. Inspired by Samuel Palmer’s writings around “mystic luminosity”, some of Leicester’s glass pieces are a direct response to the work of Palmer’s drawings.
