Alison Kinnaird has an international reputation as a visual artist and musician.
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 recognized in 1997, when she was presented with an M.B.E. for services to art and music.
Alison is also one of the foremost exponents of Scottish harp music, playing both gut and wire-strung Scottish harps. She was the first player to make a recording of Scottish harp music, and co-wrote (with Keith Sanger) the history of harp in Scotland, as well as producing many other recordings and printed collections of music. She is much in demand, at home and abroad, as a performer, a lecturer, and teacher in both her fields.
Year Established: September 1980
