Although I post quite a lot of images on Instagram of things I'm working on in the studio, I thought that it would be good for me to keep updates, news and general ramblings on here too!
So, if you don't follow me on Instagram or anything like I thought that in my first post I would start by introducing myself...
...My name is Georgia, but you will have gathered that from the title of my site.
I am 23 years old and a 2015 Fine Art graduate of the Manchester School of Art. I currently live in the North of England, not too far from Blackpool and have chosen to move home temporarily.
After graduating from university, although I did want to stay living in the city where I could go to galleries everyday, listen to live jazz whenever and have the option to go eat at a Chinese restaurant at 2am, I decided that to keep on making work I would have to leave. If I'd have stayed I would be reluctantly in a full time job, just to afford to live and if I could afford to rent a studio on top of that I'd have almost no time to use it. Instead, I work part time in a seafood pub and dedicate the rest of my free time to continuing with my practice.
On moving home, I cleared out and renovated a shed that we have in our garden and made it into a studio to work in - and I have to say, I am completely made up with the space. I'm sure that anyone who has shared studio spaces at university will know that feeling of being slowly suffocated by artworks building up around you and the fear that either you or another student will accidentally damage something you're finally happy with. I do miss the conversations though!
