ANDREW TAYLOR - Fellow of Master Glass Painters
Andrew Taylor started his stained glass studio in 1989. Having initially worked painting for theatre for some years he had come to grips with many techniques and working in large scale.
“Throughout these early days I now recognize an undercurrent in my painting which related to stained glass imagery".
He undertook several in depth part-time courses in stained glass, was fortunate to get experience in a professional studio. This served as a working apprenticeship where invaluable information was absorbed. Over the years he has designed and made over 50 windows for churches.
His studio also caters for conservation and restoration of stained glass and generally the care of stained glass in Architecture.
Andrew has now been working with stained glass for over 22 years and is an elected Fellow of the British Society of Master Glass Painters.

Work ing on a private commission panel at the moment. I was asked to convey something of the Spirit of "Wiltshire Landscape". These clumps of trees are typical seen atop and around the Wiltshire Downs, usually on Bronze Age remains. Standing stones, burial mounds are often seen in the landscape. This is still unfired paint.
