Biography

Bonjour, Nanga def, Hola!

I’m Georgina - painter, children’s book illustrator, and nomad. I’ve lived in France, England, Sweden, and Senegal, but these days you’ll find me in the Mediterranean Bosques of Catalunya, sitting on a picnic chair, painting my impressions of the surrounding vegetation.

I studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, London, where I spent most of my time cutting up road signs, constructing spheres, painting flowers on buildings, and all together revelling in the urban landscape.

After graduating in 2005, I soon moved on to children’s book illustration and have since then created images for picture books, school manuals, card games, apps and websites.

My itchy feet have taken me to exotic places around the world and my drawings are influenced by travels around Europe, South America, Australasia, Asia, and Africa. I view my paintings as polite yet curious observations of the people and landscapes around me, with a penchant for forests and a palette inspired by vintage posters.
