Alison Kinnaird

One of the world's leading engravers, with work in public, royal and private collections throughout Europe, America and the Far East. The glass ranges from small intimate pieces, to architectural installations which incorporate light and colour. A recipient of many awards and winner of many competitions, her contribution was recognised in 1997, when she was presented with an M.B.E. for services to art and music.

Concepts
My work uses the human figure as its subject along with the unique qualities of glass - its transparency, reflection and distortion. Light, colour and working on a much larger scale have recently added a new element to the pieces.

Influences
Ancient cultures/myths, The human figure, Psychology, own gender (Female),, Scottish
