Over the past four decades Kinnaird has built an international reputation using the ancient and increasingly rare technique of wheel engraving combined with modern technology to introduce light and colour. Her works have been on display all over the world and were the subject of an acclaimed exhibition during the Edinburgh Fringe this summer.

Billcliffe gets Waugh factor
AS of tomorrow, the windows areas of Roger Billcliffe's Gallery in Glasgow's Blythswood Street will be graced by the sculpture of Elizabeth Waugh, following her recent showing at the RGI Annual Show in the reopened McLellan Galleries. The 84-year-old, whose Facebook page is a model of interactive visual dialogue that the aspiring young artist would do well to emulate, has five works that have recently emerged from her studio at Billcliffe, including Birdwoman, Itchy Hare and Lady Godiva's Day Off, all of which live effortlessly up to their titles. All of them are, as she puts it, looking for new homes for Christmas.
