“My mother once told me that I was her “easiest” child because she could sit me down
at the age of two with a pencil and paper and, for hours, I would draw everything
around me, including my brothers and sister.” --Isobel George
Isobel George still “draws” from what’s around her, ingests the images and emotions
and re-creates them as watercolour/mixed-media paintings in a semi-abstract-figurative
style. She has developed a technique of working with the water, the pigment and
the paper, producing a flow and a spontaneity essential to extending the feelings
she wishes to express.
A native of London, England, George emigrated to the east coast of America in
the early seventies with her husband and two sons where, as a self-taught artist,
she spent fifteen years working in graphic design and illustration, providing imagery
for books and periodicals.
She has been painting full-time since moving to California in 1992, and divides
her creative time between California and the south of France. George’s work is exhibited
in public and private collections in Europe, South America and the U.S.A.
