Debbie George’s work is a celebration of her passion for flowers and the objects with which she surrounds herself – from ceramics to fruits, feathers and stones. Landscape is an important influence that underlies her paintings, whether they are of particular places or still-life compositions.
Debbie primes her panels with the ancient medium of gesso; she builds up, layer upon layer of paint creating a wonderful luminosity and depth that she reveals by scratching into and through the layers: an inscribing that she also uses to emphasise form.
For a number of years now, Debbie has been collecting cups, bowls, jugs and plates that depict childhood scenes, and more recently has been drawn to alphabet pieces. She is hoping to cover the whole alphabet over the next few months.
Debbie’s paintings are exhibited widely throughout the United Kingdom. She has galleries in Cornwall, Norfolk, Cambridge and London.
