Describing her work to date Georgina said it has been mainly based on animals. In 2011 she said, “I visited Madhya Pradesh, India and produced a body of work of the animals I studied at the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve for my solo exhibition at The Strathearn Gallery in 2011.
“I have continued to paint both the Scottish and the Indian wildlife. I have also been focussing on animals from Edinburgh Zoo and the Highland Wildlife Park in Kincraig, near Kingussie.” Her much sought after work features in private collections around the world.”
