Tessa Mackenzie
Glazier + Illustrator

Freelance Glazier + Illustrator based in Glasgow, interested in research-led projects, material focus in the built environment and storytelling. My practice centres around how Stained Glass can enhance the way we experience architecture and the role it has to play in telling the stories of people that occupy a space.
