Living and working in London’s Hackney Wick, Georgie paints land/seascapes from memories and sketches of places she’s visited. She uses a variety of materials to build texture including polyfilla, mud and beeswax and paints with anything from her fingers to windscreen wipers.
Georgie is inspired by the natural world, having been brought up in the Suffolk countryside, and tries to explore that relationship with nature in her work. Her method is energetic and visceral and there is a constant struggle to maintain emotionally connected with the work - which is what gives it integrity - whilst also stepping back and making it visually successful.
Since graduating from a degree in English Literature and History of Art at Nottingham University in 2015, she has exhibited internationally including in The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the Affordable Art Fest in Goa. She has had six solo shows, been the judge of Young Art East Anglia at the Peter Piers Gallery in Aldeburgh and in December completed a three-month long residency at Oundle School. In May she will be moving studios to Stepney City Farm where she will be resident artist for two years minimum. Her next solo show, in Bath (15-22 June) will be based on her recent travels to India.
