GEORGIA LANE ( 1960- )
Georgia was born in Cape Town and studied Graphic Design. She began her creative career in advertising with Ogilvy and Mather, before becoming a freelance food stylist. Her work in print, publishing and television for both local and international clients led to her becoming one of the country’s foremost food and lifestyle stylists.
Georgia’s desire to paint was re-awakened while living on a Greek Island in 2007, when she joined a painting group run by a Massachusetts artist. The limited materials available on the island sparked her interest in finding a resourceful approach to her creative expression.
She works from memory and painting becomes a meditative process in which she participates with subconscious aspects striving foremost for honesty and simplicity of thought.
