Georgia has a passion for form, which can be seen in her portrait and still life works. She has now brought that into 3D, producing wire sculptures from recycled chicken wire, which is twisted and scrunched into shape to reveal the form of trees, animals or birds. The softness of the wire enables her to manipulate it to quite intricate detail, and the aged patina provides a naturalistic feel to the sculpture.

Born in England and migrating to Australia in her twenties, Georgia has lived in the Bega Valley for fourteen years. She has studied Visual Arts at Bega TAFE and is currently studying for a degree in Fine Art and Visual Culture through Open University. She has exhibited locally, winning a number of prizes for her portraits and has been a finalist in the Bega Valley Art Awards.
