Tansy Brooks migrated to San Francisco some years ago to attend San Francisco Art Institute, and has spent the ensuing years trying to put her BFA in Sculpture to good use. She took a bit of a detour through the software industry, doing UI and Graphic Design, but the Crucible attracted her back to sculptural art and she joined the Glass Flameworking department in 2005. She also enjoys working in metal, leather, fiber, and assorted other materials, creating sculptures as well as costume and performance pieces for bellydance, snake and fire dancing.
