Hi My name is Aliyah, I am a mosaic artist and illustrator based in Bristol. I go by the artist name of Aliyahgator.
I make mixed media mosaics for organisations, offices and private residences. I use a wide variety of different materials which range from glass,stone and porcelain to pebbles, recycled objects and hand made clay pieces. I try to use sustainable materials whenever possible. My mosaics are suitable to be installed in a large room such as a boardroom or atrium, or even in a break out area to provide somewhere for staff to relax and think about things outside of the world of work.
Mosaics can be custom made and can also be made for exterior locations, such as gardens or courtyards.
As well as making mosaics I also teach mixed media mosaic workshops. These are suitable for anyone from complete beginners to people with more experience. You can read more about the workshops that I offer on the Workshops page. You can also read some testimonials from previous clients on my Testimonial page.
I particularly enjoy curating exhibitions. Most recently I co-curated “Mosaics Odysseys”… an Anglo Greek festival of mosaics which was exhibited in London, Athens and Mykonos. This festival showcased the work of some of the UK and Greece’s top contemporary mosaic artists. You can see some of the amazing mosaic work on display at the festival on the official website: http://mosaic-odysseys.weebly.com/
