Influenced by her immediate surroundings; the light, the seasons, the often overlooked details of a place, Giorgia strives for, and achieves, balance in shape and colour.  She intuitively builds up and strips away at her paintings until she can articulate a sensation. Giorgia works in mixed media, using a combination of clay paint, house paint, pens and pencils, gold leaf and paper to create pieces that have a timeless colour palette and rich, organic quality. 

 

A research scientist by day, with a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences, she started painting in 2013 after taking a mixed media art class. She found the process of working through a painting completely absorbing, and has been painting almost every day since. Her art is a meeting place of strong and delicate, with a lightness to mark-making underlaid by a strong structure to the whole, something that she points out is repeated in our lives.
