Georgie Hopton was born in 1967 in the UK and studied at St Martin’s School of Art, London in 1989. Her works in photography, collage, printmaking and sculpture are made in conjunction with wallpaper, fabric designs, unique and editioned rugs. Self-portraits, studies of flowers and still life are consistent subject threads, woven through forays into abstraction and decoration. Her heart lies in creation with no boundaries, the melding of art and life, the one reflecting and intersecting the other. Shows include; The South London Gallery, Milton Keynes Gallery in the UK, and Brancolini Grimaldi, Rome. Her work is housed in several permanent collections including the Arts Council Collection and her public art commissions can be seen at The Home Office and Royal London Hospital. Hopton was nominated for the Max Mara prize in 2007.
