Thanks to her mother and grandmother, the influence and support of art has always been present in Georgia's family. As the wife of a military man for 24 years and counting, Georgia saw much of the world over-seas which has influenced her work.
She took her first painting classes in the early 1980's and her passion for art has remained constant throughout her adult life. In 1993, her family returned to the Ohio Valley area, where she expanded her artwork to painted glass as well as traditional canvas. She opened her own shop and participated in artisan shows in a tri-state region for over a decade.
She has attended classes and seminars by Kitty Gorrell, Robert Warren, Anne Kingslan, Mark Polomchak, and Joy Wilson. She teaches classes at her own studio as well as at arranged locations. She has also taught at the Belmont Technical College. She has her own line of 'Packets' which are step by step instructions for reproducing some of her original works for beginning and mid-level artists.
She is always experimenting with different mediums and surfaces and her work is constantly evolving. In addition to glasswork painting, watercolors and oils, she has also painted murals, signs and book covers for Double Edge Press publishing. She enjoys doing winter scenes, buildings, pets and portraits.
Her work has won numerous ribbons at various competitions.
Georgia does portrait work and teaches classes as well as doing the artwork shown here. Visit her 'contact us' page for more information. *******************************
