Georgina is a British-born artist based in Wiltshire. She is drawn to documenting scenes of the domestic interior ranging from the intimate to grand, cluttered to sparse, staid to whimsical. These interiors are either real or imagined, working both from life or using found images, her room portraits are exactly that; paintings which convey an almost biographical feeling of a room, the sense of what has been before. Often empty and almost staged, there is a quiet stillness about her work in which human presence is felt rather than seen.
Having gained her BFA at Parsons, The New School in both Paris and New York, she returned to London and started studying part-time at what was then Lavender Hill Studios (now London Fine Art Studios) who provide formal training in traditional techniques of oil painting and drawing. This mixture of contemporary and traditional training has a huge influence on her work today. She has just completed the Turps Correspondence Course.
"My paintings play on the tension between form and space. The spaces I paint are often nostalgic, cluttered, and rich in pattern yet sometimes sparse, staid, and grand but in my mind, there is always a quiet and contemplative stillness about these spaces, where the absence of human presence is palpable and central to the narrative of the piece"
