Georgie is an abstract landscape/seascape painter working from her studio on Stepney City Farm in East London.

She has been teaching art classes for years, from home in Suffolk, then from Stoke Newington Old Church and at Artbox charity in London. Since moving to the city farm she has held landscape painting classes and 'Paint with Georgie' Saturday classes from her studio. The set-up is ideal, with glass double doors looking out onto the farm, animals all around, and neighboured by a spoon-carver and a ceramicist. It's a wholesome and creative environment, physically close but atmospherically very far from the hustle and bustle of the city. The classes are relaxed and Georgie offers guidance and structure but also allows for freedom of expression and if people want to experiment or do it their way, they're more then welcome!

In her own work, Georgie is inspired by the natural world, having been brought up in the Suffolk countryside. She uses a variety of materials to build texture including polyfilla and mud form the farm. Since graduating from a degree in English Literature and History of Art at Nottingham University in 2014, she has had work accepted into the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Affordable Art Fairs and had solo shows at Boston Consulting Group, Palm Tree 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. Her work is held in the private collection of the Museum of Goa in India and in boutique hotels across the UK.​

I have attended two of Georgie's Saturday classes. I'm new to painting and it was the perfect introductory class for me. The studio is easy to find in in a city farm with a lovely food market just outside the door. Georgie is friendly, interesting and easy to talk to. I enjoyed the conversation as much as the art! The atmosphere is relaxed. She lets you do your own thing and encourages you to find your own style but she is also very happy to share her own expertise and knowledge if you have any questions, need some inspiration or are feeling a bit stuck with a piece! I'll definitely be back.

Georgie’s class was a really fun experience! I met some lovely people who are now friends. The classes were relaxed but informative and Georgie talked us through some different textures and techniques that she uses in her own art whilst encouraging us to branch off and experiment with any of the materials provided. All in all a fun and well-structured course that brightens up a Monday evening!

Georgie was a great teacher. She showed us lots of new techniques and effects that I never knew existed. She was very attentive and patient with us, giving us all equal time one-to-one and giving advice without making us feel we had to take it. I learnt a lot and was very happy with my final canvas which I have had framed and put on my wall! Would recommend

I found that the Landscape Painting and Texture course helped further my interest in texture and layer making. I loved learning new and unusual techniques which helped to create more depth in my work. The class was fun and free-flowing and as it was a small group, it was easy to ask questions and get feedback.

Highly recommend for any aspiring artists, or anyone that fancies taking few hours of their week for some therapeutic painting and to learn some thing new. Georgie was a really wonderful teacher and just being around her paintings was super inspiring. Would love to do another workshop when it comes up!

A really therapeutic evening spent in Georgie’s beautiful studios painting and exploring techniques. The atmosphere is very calming as it’s set on a farm and you’re surrounded by Georgie’s inspiring colourful artworks. Georgie helps you try out techniques and materials that you may have never used and shows you how to use them. The intimate group of 4 is just right as you can get the guidance you need and also meet new people! All in all, a very special find!

I just loved going to these classes! What an inspirational setting, expert guidance from Georgie, and ample opportunities to create and paint! I was really in need of something to unwind in the evening and to rediscover a love of painting, bringing home several paintings at the end was a bonus! Highly recommend, whether you’ve painted before or not.

Georgie is an amazing teacher. Really helpful and knowledgeable and she lets you learn at your own pace as you experiment with different techniques. She makes it easy for someone with very little skills to create beautiful works of art.

I have just collected the painting I had framed after my fantastic sessions at 'Georgie's Saturdays'. I hadn't painted for years and this offered me the perfect solution to get back into it! Georgie is so inspiring, kind and patient and her enthusiasm is infectious. She gave me the confidence to just have a go and it's perfect being able to just turn up to a space set up for painting as it's hard to put space aside for that at home. Can't recommend it highly enough - a real therapy.
