Having been brought up in a field in Suffolk*, she misses open space and green grass and feels very happy to be working somewhere as close to 'countryside' as one could hope for in a city. She tries to bring her natural surroundings into her work, amalgamating textures such as straw, mud and sand from the farm with traditional materials and techniques. Her passion for experimentation and discovering new effects through 'happy accidents' keeps her practise fresh, and moves her work organically in new directions.
Since graduating from a degree in English Literature and History of Art at Nottingham University in 2015, she has had work accepted into the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Affordable Art Fairs and had solo shows at Boston Consulting Group, Unit G Gallery and Lavenham Hall Gallery. She’s had work shortlisted for the NEAC Annual Exhibition and NOA Prize and was winner of the Harry Walker Prize at the BSA Annual Exhibition. She was the judge of Young Art East Anglia and has been a guest lecturer at Queen Mary University. Her work is held in the private collection of the Museum of Goa in India and in boutique hotels across the UK.
Georgie is particularly interested in the therapeutic effects of art and teaches relaxed, informal workshops from her studio on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays. She has over seven years' experience as a teacher, having held workshops at schools around London, London Mindful Living Festival 2019 and in various pop up spaces including Stoke Newington Old Church, Artbox Charity and Broadgate Circle.
