Georgina Potter

Georgina paints instinctively working directly from life on smaller boards and then translating these into bigger works in the studio. All of her work is from somewhere specific, even if it is just a memory, and she is inspired principally by changing light. Georgina works very quickly making very large and loose marks on the boards, trying to maintain energy expression throughout.

Previous shows and awards, amongst others, are:
- The Diana Brooks Art Prize
- ING Discerning Eye
- Bath Society of Artists 2019
- Chelsea Art Society 2019
- Solo Shows at The Russell Gallery
