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.

No better place to spend a sunny afternoon, than on a city farm with the incredible Georgie. Surrounded by her professional art work, you immediately get stuck in to whatever creation you were interested in making, with her patient help and support

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.

Had a great time on this course. Was able to get hands on with all the different kinds of textures and by the end had made four different paintings I was pleased with. Lovely studio in a great setting... loved being able to go and see the farm animals on breaks!

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.

I really enjoyed Georgie's class, she is a great teacher and her studio is the perfect place to paint. Surrounded by lots of her beautiful paintings her studio in Stepney City Farm is a great venue to get inspired. I love Georgie's abstract style and her use of texture, so it was a great opportunity to learn her techniques. I will definitely be signing up for another class!

I loved my painting session with Georgie. She is warm, friendly, helpful and inspiring. We had a good chat about ideas for my painting and she gave me lots of ideas that aided my own creativity (I may have never thought to add texture with polyfilla otherwise!). The studio itself is in a lovely setting overlooking the farm with pigs, goats and hens. There is a farmers market too with lots of tasty offerings. Definitely an experience to be repeated, very calming and hugely enjoyable!

Great activity for a Saturday, I really enjoyed myself! Georgie is super helpful with showing you different painting techniques while letting you do your thing and be creative. Lots of different colours and canvasses to choose from. The venue (Stepney City Farm) is also really nice and has lots of animals, plants and a farmer's market.

Having not even picked up a paintbrush since school Georgie was really patient, incredibly helpful and clearly knows her stuff. The class was genuinely great fun, very relaxed and there was even time for a tour of the farm. Would highly recommend and will be back!

Lovely afternoon painting with Georgie - it was a fun & relaxed session, Georgie strikes a great balance between help & advice and allowing you freedom to do your own thing. The tea was free flowing, the donkeys were heehawing in the background on the farm outside, and I think we all left with paintings we liked and thoroughly enjoyed making. The perfect Saturday escape from the city grind! Thanks Georgie :) x

I had such a wonderful time. Georgie was really encouraging and got me out of my comfort zone. It was great to try new ways of painting the things I love! The session was held in Georgie's studio and it was very inspiring to be surrounded by her works. Thanks Georgie!!

Georgie was very professional and encouraging. We were able to try a lot of different textures and techniques which I think were really fun. I was a bit shy about painting in the first place (I was offered this class by my partner) but I was glad to experience other techniques and had tons of fun in this class. It is very relaxed and the farm around the studio and Georgie's kindness makes it a charming and lovely experience. I recommend for any person who wishes to try or come back to painting.

A very instructive session helped me with a project I have not previously undertaken. This was to create a promotional art deco style Welsh Corgi poster by tracing from original jpeg images. Georgie suggested methods that I had not thought of by using marker pens. Now that I've got the hang of it, I'm getting new ideas all the time!! So, thank you Georgie for your Director Skills!

I really loved the Tuesday class, Georgie is so helpful and friendly, and was able to provide some really useful techniques to everyone! It didn't feel like being in London at all, with the sound of farm animals in the background it couldn't have been a better location. 5 stars to the chef who prepared our delicious lunch! Highly recommend this class to anyone, thank you Georgie!

Georgie is a warm, friendly and encouraging teacher and her studio in Stepney City Farm is wonderful oasis, you can't help but unwind and feel those creative juices flow - surrounded by the colour, light and openness Georgie has created in the space. After a few hours of experimenting with textures and styles we had a walk round the farm in the glorious sunshine and came back to a delicious lunch laid on by Alice - beautifully made vegetable tarts, seasonal salads and an unbelievably good blueberry loaf cake! We finished off the day with a bit more painting and a few rounds of tea and then took our works of art home. Such a wonderful day that coming home afterwards felt like coming back from a holiday!

I had such an inspiring day on the farm and in the studio with Georgie. We all learnt lots of new and effective techniques for creating texture and it was great having the use of all the paints and products to try out ideas. Lunch cooked by Alice was delicious and our walk around the farm a lovely addition to the day. Georgie is a really kind and excellent teacher - she just came up with the prefect suggestion each time I wasn't quite sure which direction to go in and I was really pleased with my finished picture! I'd highly recommend this day for complete beginners or practising artists alike - it was utterly therapeutic.

Georgie's art class was such fun. The venue helped set the scene and the room was light and airy and we were able to work with the doors open which was great. Georgie was a great teacher who allowed us to go with our ideas and managed to input when it was needed in a positive way that didn't quash confidence and creativity. We were encouraged to use a range of different materials and resources which was a real bonus and meant I could experiment, make mistakes and learn. I finished the day energised and excited about my next piece of art. Thank you Georgie for a really great day. P.S. The lunch was yummy too!
