Since graduating from University in 1994 with a BA Honours in Fine Art; George has produced almost 450 paintings and sold them all! Born in Ardglass, Co. Down in 1968 he was encouraged by his father Ben, a talented water-colourist himself, to draw and paint.
Discovering the work of the Surrealists as a teenager cemented his ambition to become an artist. Extensive travel allowed him to view paintings that up until then had only been poured over in books. Befriending his hero the Scottish painter Peter Howson gave George great encouragement during his college years. Settling at Tyrella Beach in 1995 his palette became brighter, inspired by the local landscape and the sunshine of Los Angeles which he frequently visited.
He has exhibited with the RUA, had shows in Dublin, London and New York, produced iconic artwork for rock bands, been featured on MTV, worked with wine merchants and his paintings and prints hang in private collections the world over. 170 people attended the Opening Night of his retrospective exhibition in 2015.
