Gitte Eijerfeldt (or Gitte Öijerfeldt) works as a freelance artist and illustrator in Glasgow, UK, and has her second home in Luxor, Egypt. She paints people in their local environments using oil paint on canvas or board, both with painting and illustrating. The details she is drawn to can be a gesture, a composition or an atmosphere. She says: "I wish to create a meditative space through colour and form using a narrative … by recreating and deconstructing a new meaning to the setting. I don’t have a fixed visual idea when I start a new painting, but usually social, political and cultural issues relating to gender emerge through the work process, i.e. lately, I have painted images of women in enclosed spaces."

Gitte travels a lot and coordinates and curates exhibitions of artist run spaces.
