About Gill Aitken Art

Gill Aitken Art

My bright and colourful mosaics and paintings make unique and lasting gifts.

I find it impossible to choose between painting and mosaic-making - I love them both! Creativity is what matters to me; so long as I'm creating something that's beautiful or quirky I'm happy. I make and sell smaller mosaics at craft fairs as well as online, but I also take on local commissions, mostly for outdoor projects (such as the wall mosaic pictured). My mosaic studio is overflowing with gorgeous glass tiles, found objects, glues and cements and I always have something on the go. Although I'd say I'm self-taught, I learned the basics from books - with lots of experimenting along the way. On the painting front I particularly enjoy painting animals in a loose, expressive style. When a painting is going well I seem to enter a wonderful meditative state where time disappears and only the moment matters.
