Georgina graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2002 with a BA (Hons) Visual Communication, specialising in Drawing, Painting and Illustration.
She continued her studies for a further year, studying Teacher Training at Bath Spa University.
In 2008, she was awarded the David Cargill Award at The Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts for her painting ‘Perfect Match’, which we delighted to have available in print.
She has been included in many group exhibitions throughout the UK and the continuing popularity of her work has been recognised with solo shows now in the offering.
‘My work is mainly based in animals, in particular Scottish wildlife. I use acryllic paint on canvas, leaving the background blank to draw the focus purely on the animal. Capturing the soul of the animal in their eyes, the softness of the fur and the wetness of the Scottish weather on the beast, is what I endeavour to create in my work.
I try to achieve the different texture by using lots of light layers of paint and a wide variety of brushes.’ – Georgina McMaster
