A glass artist, Ann Robinson attended Elam School of Fine Art, Auckland University, in the late 1960s, leaving the school mid way through her degree to explore other avenues. Ann returned to Elam and completed her studies after a 15 year break, inspired to learn and develop techniques in casting glass. She has travelled internationally and nationally to teach and educate others about her craft. She received the Phillips Glass Award in 1984 and 1986, and the Winstone Biennale Award for Craft in 1987. In 1998 she was honoured by a major survey exhibition of her works at the Dowse Museum in Wellington. In 2001 she was awarded the Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM).
