AITKEN, Pauline J

1943 - ?

Born in Bedford in 1943, daughter of Richard Alec Aitken (1914-2003) and his wife Doria H. Chessum, who married at Biggleswade, Bedfordshire in 1939. She studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in London 1961-1966. As a young artist her work was recognized in 1968 at the British International Print Biennale and continued through the years winning awards and has recently received the Arts Business and Empoyees’ and the Arts, Business and the Smaller Budget. Her work is mainly two-dimensional and ‘is concerned with the exploration of the process of change and of states of change, through the investigation of botanical and zoological forms, where structure is constantly transforming.’ Pauline Aitken has had several gallery and museum exhibitions, including a solo show at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. She currently lives at Eye on the Suffolk/Norfolk border.
