Graham Reid grew up in South Africa, then studied architecture and sculptural glass at Massachusetts College of Art. After returning to his ancestral roots in Ireland, he designed and built Knockbeg Glass Studios where he taught and blew glass under the name Glóine Eíreann. He now teaches glassblowing at Leitrim Sculpture Centre and has a glassblowing and metal studio in Dromore, Sligo. His glass sculptural work is primarily concerned with expressing and manifesting the universal forces that surround us but are often invisible. He also recieved an MPhil in Music and Media Technology at Trinity College Dublin. His work has been commissioned by private and government bodies, and widely exhibited.
